Hi all,

does anybody has an idea about why this Xtend template:

https://github.com/Guite/MostGenerator/blob/master/org.zikula.modulestudio.generator/src/
org/zikula/modulestudio/generator/cartridges/zclassic/smallstuff/documents/DeveloperHints.xtend

causes an output like shown in this issue:

https://github.com/Guite/MostGenerator/issues/610


The Xtend file has UTF-8 as encoding.

Maybe this could be related to the output having a wrong encoding?
https://github.com/Guite/MostGenerator/issues/329

But there are no special chars replaced by question marks. Instead the
question marks seem to be added to the output.

Thanks for your help,

Axel

the template actually contains a lots of "C2 AD" which are soft hyphens.
of course you should tell the JavaIoFileSystemAccess via IEncodingProvider to write the files as UTF-8 as well.

Hi Christian,

thanks for your fast reply.

How did you find out the soft hyphens (i.e. which tool did you use to check
the Xtend file)?
