For the time being I scrapped two alien characters that showed up in 'vi' and all is fine. You are probably right about this BOM-mark. In Wikipedia they mention Notepad, I had used Wordpad. We shall see...
You ARE confusing me a bit. I am not willing to "set up a CVS client". I do not even know what that is or how to. I just want to be of service to make some sensible Dutch translations for TUX Paint where they are lacking. And so I did.
Reading on SourceForge some remarks of yours saying, as I thought understanding them, that you prefer the .po and .mo files being sent directly to you. I thought you insisted there, quite rightly so, to be the gate-keeper.
On May 31st and on June 10th I indeed sent my complete works to you. And I added some comments and a lot of attachments that, I judged, need not be scattered all over the http://www. All I dare ask is to please let me know that you received them. Or else I shall keep bombarding you with them, so help me the devil. And if you please, let know what you will do with it, if you have decided something in that direction.

That would probably be this:

If you're willing to set up a CVS client, you can simply pull down the
latest copy of everything, as we're working on it. (And perhaps down the
road, commit your own changes back to the repository, so that noone needs
to act as a gatekeeper.)
