Thread Name: Macaronachas / Macaronic Songs. Language mixing
Subject: RE: Macaronachas / Macaronic Songs. Language mixin
That was weird, I was trying to see the diacritic on "siÃ¢n", which was coming out on my screen as a capital A with an accent followed by a US cent sign (c + /). I checked the encoding and it was defaulting to "Western-Windows" so I clicked on Unicode, but it went automatically to 16-bit, and the whole thread suddenly turned into Chinese gibberish with occasional sentences in a mixture of Georgian, Korean and Devanagari. When I clicked on UTF-8 it finally showed me the circumflex I craved.
