Emacs does a better job of displaying 'odd' characters than vim. You could also use 'od -h -a' to verify what you actually have. Can you import the file using Excel?

    I actually tried Excel and it gave great results, so at least MS can read the MS output, but then Excel told me it could only display the first 65,536 lines (I have ~160,000). Gave me a chuckle anyway.

    The od output looks intriguing:

    0000000 feff 0044 0041 0052 004b 0030 0031 0044 del ~ D nul A nul R nul K nul 0 nul 1 nul D nu +l
    I guess the "del" and "~" are some other interpretation of my y-umlaut and p-thingy?
