I got some HTML that has à in place of registered trademark symbols.

I tested saving from Word and a variety of copy-paste-into-text editor
scenarios, but can't figure out how this happened.

I want to help the original author fix their process so à does not show up
in their html text. Anyone have any ideas how they did this? (No, there is
no Norwegian or foreign language involved, it's all American English.)
