Little boxes vex me

I'm suddenly getting little boxes of letter-number combinations in the text on my computer screen. What are they?

My Google-fu has mysteriously failed me and I don't know what I'm looking at. This one (☮) is supposed to be a peace symbol (from a blog post). [It looks like this is going to work, but on the off chance it doesn't post like I'm seeing it, it's a little square with the number 26 on top and 2E below.]
These things are starting to appear in search results and now in blogs. What are they and from whence do they suddenly appear? And why?
