Hey I cant figure out why this is happening.
the polys look fine until I flip them or extrude them.
Its that triangle poly on the f and the H . I cant figure out why its there.
Ive tried to delete the ploy and reselect the points in order and create new poly but it gives same result.
Any Ideas?

I've had the same thing with text - it doesn't appear or render in Layout, so often you can just forget about it.

Can U guys see the pics?
for some reason I cant.
well just in case you cant
Im getting a triangle poly on my F's and H's
and it seems to be on the back side of my letters wich were imported from illustrator EPS file.
It starts from the bottom of letter and goes to top right of arm from F
Hopefully u can see the pic, Ive posted pics before with no problems Im not sure whats up today.

render it... tell me if it shows up in the render.

i have that happen all the time when i import text from illustrator and bevel or extrude it. it's always been the backside polys in my cases. i've just deleted them (the backside polys) when they aren't being seen. if you must have them i'd try looking around the backside real close and merging some points.

Ok u were right,
when I render them in layout they are not there anymore
its still pretty weird though
anyone know what causes that?

Yes I have that happen to me all the time as I have done a few logo's. I just trippled the polys and it went away.:)

I would think it is an OpenGL error.

it Is a display error.
there are ways of avoiding this behavior, but as long as it looks good in the render, I suggest you accept it.

It is a display error, but you can get rid of it easily. It happens on really complicated faces. (ie lots of points)

Add a few joints in the offending poly by using the Spolit command (control-L) and the problem will go away.
