Attached is an image of what I see:
And here is the offending line from
1.38beta1 on win10.
<meta name="authors" content="Enrico TrÃ¶ger Nick Treleaven Frank
Lanitz Colomban Wendling Matthew Brush" />
And a dump of that line:
$ head -8 index.html | tail -1 | od -c
0000000 < m e t a n a m e = " a u t h
0000020 o r s " c o n t e n t = " E n
0000040 r i c o T r 303 203 302 266 g e r
0000060 N i c k T r e l e a v e n
0000100 F r a n k L a n i t z C o
0000120 l o m b a n W e n d l i n g
0000140 M a t t h e w B r u s h "
0000160 / > \r \n
This tells me that at some point the UTF8 content was loaded as ISO-8859-?
So looking at https://nightly.geany.org/win32/build_win32_geany.log,
the problem is clear: the build is using Python 2.7. Python2 will read
the file as ASCII by default, while Python3 will try to detect the
encoding and fall back to UTF-8. Plus Python2 is now unsupported.
When I tried to recreate the problem on msys and cygwin for 1.31.1,
1.36, and 1.37.1 , I could not reproduce it because I have Python3
installed as the only Python on both systems. I spent more time than I
should have on this, and I think you may have found a solution
Also this the results from the locale command:

On cygwin, I get the same, but with LC_ALL having the same value.
