Re: can someone replicate this cut and paste bug?

   the source document used was downloaded from:


   search for the phrase

"particle size between 200–500 um"

   and copy and paste it to any text terminal,
vi'd document, or even LibreOffice doc.  all
do the same thing and translate it from um to

   so if someone can replicate this it would
help.  if not, then i'd be stumped because
i have no familiarity with cut and paste

   thanks much,


That's not a 'u' - it's the lower case greek letter mu, which is probably not in the charset you're using (sorry, I can't test it right now).
