What is a character replacement error?

If you see an alert that says "Suspected Character Replacement" this is because our system has detected possible character replacement within the text.

This happens when a foreign character is used in place of what we would consider a letter in the Latin alphabet.

This is a common technique people use when trying to submit an assignment that is nearly identical but they have replaced some letters throughout the text. 

We recommend checking the document and inspecting the text that has text with different characters that do not match the rest of the text.
