This piece of wierd behaviour of Microsoft's notepad was pointed out to me by Mr.Bibek, a friend of mine….
For those of you using Windows, do the following:
1.) Open an empty notepad file
2.) Type "Bush hid the facts" (without the quotes)
3.) Save it as whatever you want.
4.) Close it, and re-open it.
Is it just a really weird bug?
I did that and found to my chagrin that the text in the file was getting converted into some junky boxes! It ain't surprising to see that, considering the fact that there were other such wierd buggy stuff in other microsoft products as well. There's one in Excel (which 'may' be an easter egg!) and another about being unable to create a folder named 'con' or omething like that! A little digging led me to Wired wherein one Mr.Kevin posts in the Wired Blog about it. The Post's comments contain a link to this page which offers a kinda explanation for it! Sounded double dutch to me😦
Whatever be the explanation, if a simple app such as notepad is this 'wierd' in some cases, how will Vista be !
