Congrats on the completion of your 30/30 project!
Hope you've had a chance to rest a bit. Did find a new issue that needs some looking at.
Problem first found in Treehouse 20130811 when using the Replace off the Edit menu:
I've been working on converting a short story to HTML and had to make some corrections that my OCR software didn't catch. I first ran into the problem when trying to change the word Abbe to it's correct form of Abbé.
I paste Abbe into the "find" box and the version with the special characters in the "replace" box.
Tools runs and then gives me the results and, while it found all the instances, it dropped the ampersand from each replacement and left a space in place of the character, giving me Abb eacute;.
Further experimenting shows that this occurs with any attempt to use the Replace (either single or multi-line) function when it involves special characters...I get the same result with the ampersand being dropped and a space put in it's place.
This problem does not occur with the "Convert special characters" function of Text Actions.
The problem is still there with the 20130819 build that I downloaded this morning around 9AM PST.
What makes this all the stranger is that the problem only occurs in the Windows 7 machine and NOT the Win XP (a reversal of what normally happens).
Hope you're rested up enough to take a looksee...LOL!
