Just a guess: U+20AC (Euro) got converted to windows-1252 0x80 (Euro),
mis-interpreted as U+0080 (C1 control), and re-encoded in UTF-8.
windows-1252 is a sort of superset of ISO 8859-1 in that it replaces
most C1 control codes with various useful graphic characters like the
Euro sign and curly quotes.
