A problem with special characters seemed to me to be a bug. I sent a mail
to R-windows at r-project.org concerning the problem (see below).
How can I find out, if this is considered as a bug or an error of myself?
Which part of FAQs or documentation did I miss to find the answer?

thanks in advance
