We can let this go. I was just looking for some quick insight.


1. Mac OSX El Capitan or Mavericks.
2. Colleague copies text in Word.
3. Colleague pastes text into body section of a text file with required
HTML sections already there (TextWrangler).
4. Colleague adds HTML tags in the text file.
5. Colleague renames the .txt to .htm.
6. See à instead of Â.


I appreciate that you think it a mistake, but I don't care about that. I
was just looking to figure out how à ended up in there.
