i had some troubles with non-english characters like "umlaut"/äöü. at least
in older vestions of pythonwin deleting such a character did't deleted the
character attribute. in this state pythonwin refused to save the file until
i deleted that character too.
these problems _are_ fixed in PyWin 2.1 but maybe there is still a small
maybe it has to do something with broken two byte unicode characters in
UTF8 encoding, but i don't realy know.
the best solution in cases where i counld't find the illegal character, was
to copy the entire file and paste it in an other editor.
