Vcard problem

I use openfire 3.3.2 as server, and it is set up in a remote computer.

After I change my personal picture. Value of my vcard stored in the database contain the illegal characters “&#0”. why this happens?

the vcard value is as follow:

<vCard xmlns=“vcard-temp”><FN>Amanda</FN><NICKNAME></NICKNAME><Sex/><HomePage/><HomeAddress/><PersEmail/><PersonPost/>&l t;Company/>

<Department/><Job/><JobTitle/><BussAddress/><BussEmai l/><BussHomePage/><BussPost/><TEL><HOME/><NUMBER/& gt;</TEL><T

The only difference between correct and incorrect value is that incorrect value have some ‘‘�’’ inserting into the <BINVAL> field where i have marked as red. But if openfire and IM client set up in the same computer,this will not happen. Why? Does the illegal character arise during data transfering over internet,or when storing the data into the cache or database?
