Can you please post the output? I don't think anyone here is capable of mindreading.

Hi,

you can possibly solve your problem opening the file with another editor. Vi, Vim, gvim, emacs or xemacs are trusted by a lot of people and they usually don't hide control characters. Try to open it with one of these, and see what happens.

Regards,

Antón
