Word uses that character when it can't find the right character in its character set.

FWIW, https://support.office.com/en-ca/article/Choose-text-encoding-when-you-open-and-save-files-60d59c21-88b5-4006-831c-d536d42fd861.

Thanks all.

I cannot reproduce the error, but looks like a character set issue.

The origin is Word. So, that's copy-and-pasted into a text editor. The
result has the AE character instead of the (r). I just can't figure out
why, and the author claims to be using Text Wrangler, which should do this
just fine (I tested -- I even tested with evil TextEdit).

So, why this is happening remains a mystery.

Cheers,

Sean
