Why, oh why, does Chrome do thisÉ

See the É at the end of that sentence (and this one)É
Thatès supposed to be a question mark. Some of the other punctuation in this paragraph is bound to turn out wrong, too, like the apostrophe in Thatès.
It seems to be some kind of language or keyboard setting issue. It only happens in Chrome, and while itès happening in Chrome, anywhere else I type in another application is perfectly fine. Restarting Chrome doesnèt seem to help, though restarting my entire computer does.
I canèt find this mystery setting. I donèt know how it gets changed in the first place, nor how to change it back. It happens apparently randomly every few weeks.
Here are some other examples of punctuation thatès suddenly gone wrong in case it helps:
é - is a forward slash
" - is a greater than sign
' - is a less than sign
è - is an apostrophe
È - is a set of quotes
à - is a backslash
À - is a vertical bar
Ç and ¨- are curly braces
ç and ^- are square ones
