I have copied ordinary text from Notepad to lots of other applications
and had no problem, whereas I have copied ordinary text from other
applications to BabelPad and had the mojibake problem. I suppose there
is a possibility that something other than BabelPad is the culprit, but
I'm applying the duck test here.
As I said earlier, I assume Andrew will fix this for the next release of
BP, if he hasn't already.
