Are you certain the character codeset is UTF-8? Text files are a bit of a guessing game as to their character codeset. Using the wrong codeset will result in incorrect characters or completely missing text.

On Windows, I believe Notepad will show the encoding in the bottom right corner and allow you to save the file as different encodings.
