https://github.com/manics/openmicroscopy/commit/4af0f14b90b5f35f0108c04978a65d66e918d9f2 and https://github.com/mtbc/openmicroscopy/commit/7b77a7447eb4aa0be58f41cef88075de205e4cb7 fix some fancy characters in Java source with some Unicode escaping.
Perhaps this should be done more comprehensively in the codebase and added to notes on coding style. It's easy to get encoding of directly typed characters wrong with things like MacRoman? floating around and different editors and viewers giving quite different views of the same characters. (Or perhaps some other tack should be taken, but also in a consistent and documented way.)
