The problem does not come from the linking of external files.
As xpt files contain specific characters they emerge the encoding issue
mentioned in my case, especially when sharing files between different
To work properly, either by linking the file or by copying it, we should
detect the encoding of the file when created. So when a user A create a
file under windows, usually the default encoding is set to "Cp1252" then
if this file is sent to a different user B which work under MAC, the
default encoding is set to "Mac Roman". User B will be unable to read
the file correctly. To read it, he should set the file encoding to "Cp1252".
To resolved this encoding inconsistencies across platforms, I propose to
set the default encoding for xpt files on creation to UTF-8, or detect
it from the content like xml files.
