That's weird. If numbers are in the middle of a quote but not in boxes, they aren't meant to be solved. Like years or percentages. That doesn't sound like what you encountered, just putting it out there as a possibility.
If you believe it to be a glitch, take a screenshot and email it to Admin. He can use the url to track down the offending page and fix it for future users. Doesn't help you any, but it won't happen again.
La, la, la - la - la - la....
