It's certainly closer now, but still not quite right. The katakana is gone, but the χ has become a ? and the Å is still a bit confused. The © is correct, though.

Well, that's fun!

Try this and let me know if it makes a difference:

With a text editor (like notepad, not Word), open the file


Edit line 8 to read

   set encoding iso_8859_1

that is, replace "default" with "iso_8859_1".

That's my first thought.  No guarantees!
