FWIW, I cut'n'pasted the text from a browser window.  I've now made the
web server send a charset=UTF-8 by default.  The auto-guessing code in
my browser (GNU IceCat) apparently didn't work well without a charset
parameter, so it incorrectly guessed the file was Latin-1, leading to
the broken data above.
