currently I'm using slackware ver 12.1.
My work requires me to use windows therefore i happen to encounter this problem which baffle me for some time.
When i use notepad, notepad++ or wordpad to open my file, there is a special character which displays as a '?'
However when i open up the same file on my slackware using vi editor and kwrite, it display as an empty space? I tried :set list in VI to display special characters, but it still displays as space.
Anybody know why this happens? What can caused this issue?
For both platforms, what does it use to read the characters in a file?
