If I click 'view source' from:
and copy some particularly obscure special characters (extended IPA) from the notepad file that shows me the source, then paste them into a Notepad2 file, I sometimes get the dreaded 'square', and sometimes see the character properly.
Note that the encoding of the Notepad2 file is UTF-8 before I paste the characters.
Moreover, even when the 'squares' are shown in the file, Firefox correctly displays the special characters after uploading the file.
Please could someone shed some light on this strange behaviour for me? :-)
My goal is to type IPA into the Notepad2 file (i.e. for the symbols to be visible, without the need for typing char refs and other hard-to-proofread nonsense).
Perhaps my problem is that I need a different text editor, though I can't think why Notepad2 shouldn't handle this correctly...
Thanks a lot.
