(Not sure which version of Eclipse this is based on.)
MACHINE OS: Windows Vista
PROBLEM: I am trying to edit an HTML file which features special characters (eg: § - section, - long dash, smart quotes, etc).
When I open the file to edit, all of the special characters appears as boxes. (ie: �).
Why is Eclipse failing to render the special characters properly within the text editor?
I can manually enter the character via ALT code entry (ie: ALT+0167 will display §). So the text editor has the ability to render the symbols in the current display font. It's just failing to do so after the opening of a file.
Any help, suggestions, advice would be much appreciated. It's frustrating to not be able to use a tool because of such a goofy problem.
