Sounds like encoding/locale confusion. Presumably, you have an accented
character in the file somewhere, but in a different encoding to what
source() expects. What is your platform?
Notice also that emacs sometimes switches encodings on the fly.
(Remember to follow up to the R-help, not to me. On some platforms,
there are things I Just Don't Know, and it is good practice anyway to
keep things on the list.)
