#1174 non-ASCII files

My editor keeps complaining about the file src/mouse.c which contains a non-ascii character (which is not valid UTF-8 either):

# ifdef OS2
strcat(format, ";% #.4gø)");
# else
strcat(format, ", % #.4gdeg)");
# endif

May I please request to change the code in some way? Putting a character with some numeric code comes to mind, but there are certainly enough other ways to change this. I don't know what the code does.

Apart from Japanese files using a different encoding on purpose, the following list of files uses the old encoding:

* term/tgif.trm (it should either be changed to UTF-8 or written as "NOV\'AK" or something along those lines)
49c49
< /* MODIFIED May, 11st 1997 by NOVÁK Levente (novakl@tigris.klte.hu): */
63c63
< /* Modified 04 February 2002 by Levente Novák */

* term/PostScript/aglfn.txt (what is the weird character?)
Ê The Adobe materials are provided on an "AS IS" basis.Ê

* These are ISO-8859 for demonstrational purposes, I believe, so no need to change them:
demo/epslatex.dem
demo/fontfile.dem
demo/fontfile_latex.dem

    mouse.c: That's an OS2 encoding for the degree sign. It's there exactly for that reason.

    aglfn.txt: Directly as provided by Adobe. Note that it says
    # - No modification, editing or other alteration of this document is
    # allowed;

    tgif.trm: OK. Converted to UTF-8
