That's interesting. When I wrote that, it showed on my screen as a cent
symbol and a copyright symbol. What I see in your response is an upper
case "A" with a hat accent (circumflex?) over it followed by a cent
symbol, and likewise an upper case "A" with a hat accent over it
followed by copyright symbol.
Oh, for the days of ASCII again :-)
Not to mention, of course, that I wrote <colon><dash><close-paren>, but
I fully expect some of you will be reading this with absurd clients
which turn that into some kind of smiley-face image.

I think that's called UTF-8.
