If it is Ä you are talking about, you can
type it with Alt + 0196, but I dont thing this
character is there with any purpose. I believe
it is some sort of curruption of the text in the
source code files. you should simply do
away with this character by find and replace.
replace it with nothing that is leave the "replace
with" field blank. make sure the "whole word" and "match
case" check boxes are checked.
Write back if there is anything else you wanna ask.
