  • Thanks, it seems to work well, except for some characters that get messed up, e.g., Céline -> Céline. – Franck Dernoncourt Jan 31 '16 at 1:26
  • @FranckDernoncourt use a different viewer for the file or try to tell the view that the file is unicode/UTF-8. If I reproduce the problem I will post a more specific solution. – Michael Potter Mar 24 '18 at 22:43
