IDE 1.6.8 - Serial output not printing in English

Even though I have set my preferences to English, it's not printing in English. Instead, it prints something like the following in the serial output:

ú=õÈÍÿRYÿbQRÒÿøAÿRÙÿmVÿøÎüZRÿú=ñRÙÿmVÿÈÝcQÿèÍÿaaÿúø

Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you.

If that's in the serial output then you probably have the wrong baud rate set in the console window.

Check your sketch for the correct rate and set your window accordingly.

Thanks, that worked. I just need to pay more attention.
