Problems with ANSI Characters « and » 0x0171 and 0x187
I have problems writing or copy/pasting the “Double Angle Quotation Marks” in NPP (running version 7.1.1).
A file containing the symbols is displayed correctly, but copy/pasting it breaks it into unreadable characters.
Also typing (Hitting Alt+171) inserts the broken character, not the needed one.
Same for copying out of charmap.exe
This is true for ANSI Files.
When I paste the sign into an UTF-8 file, it is first displayed correctly, but converting to ANSI, I get an extra (Â) A-circumflex before the sign.
Is that a strange setting?
I can’t see your reported issue concerning the broken characters
Regarding the extra char, this happens when you chose Encode in Ansi, which basically is a view of the current bytes and because those chars are encoded in two
bytes in utf8 you see the additional first byte. If you choose convert to ansi, from a clean state, it shows it correctly.
