#207 Replace inserts Special Characters

Program (402)

I wanted to remove some HTML tags by replacing them
with nothing. NEdit inserted control characters instead
of nothing.

I entered '\<\l\>' in the String to Find field, pressed
Find to check, then pressed 'Window'. After that, I
changed the RE to '\</\l\>', '\<\l+\>' and '\</\l+\>'
and did likewise.

Nothing looked wrong at first sight, but a closer
revealed some non-printables where the tags have been.
'od -c' revealed them to be character 240.

I never touched the Replace With field.

    Is this repeatable ?
    If so, can you attach a sample input file for which this
    sequence triggers the problem ?
    Could the input file have contained nul characters ?
