Hi John,

I was checking and the file in question was indeed in ANSI, changed the file
encoding to utf8 and it's OK.
Anyway, I have gitweb install side-by-side, and in gitweb it was shown

I have other places where chars are not shown OK but didn't get any
conclution about the file encoding, I'll tell you later,
