    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
    VIEW shows

    I haven't changed anything in VIEW. (And since I don't have the source code, I'm not going to.)

    And that spells "mojibake" in Japanese.

    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.
