VIEW is now working OK with the example I gave earlier. It shows this BTM correctly in both text and hex mode.
Code:
echo %ø
It continues to get it right in hex mode, but if I change the text to
Code:
echo %øø
VIEW shows, in text mode

And if I change the text to
Code:
echo %ø ø

According to Wiki, that character is in CP 1252 (and in the right place). If I use CP 1252, it looks the same in VIEW's text mode as with CP 437 ("mojibake"?). Did you notice that how VIEW rendered it changed from the first time I mentioned it in the ParamChar thread? FWIW, I put a few hundred bytes of plain batch file stuff in that file and that character still looked the same in VIEW.
