I’ve just read an article written in Farsi (the link is unfortunately broken) about an interesting bug in Microsoft’s Notepad. Here’s the story:
- Open Notepad.
- Type AAAA BBB CCC DDDDD (or any other 4-3-3-5 alphanumeric combination).
- Save the document and close the notepad.
- Open the saved file.
Amazingly, the resulting text has been turned into unicode.
