I wanted to remove some HTML tags by replacing them
with nothing. NEdit inserted control characters instead
I entered '\&lt;\l\&gt;' in the String to Find field, pressed
Find to check, then pressed 'Window'. After that, I
changed the RE to '\&lt;/\l\&gt;', '\&lt;\l+\&gt;' and '\&lt;/\l+\&gt;'
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.
