Subject: Strange character inserted by org-capture
Date: Thu, 11 Nov 2010 10:46:03 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <878w10f89g.fsf@gmail.com> (raw)


I have a setup which uses Dropbox to keep files in sync, between my
Ubuntu Linux machine at home, and Windows XP at the office.

I have the following setup in org-capture:

(setq org-capture-templates (quote (("n" "Note" entry (file+headline "~/My Dropbox/gtd/notes.org" "Notes") "* %^{topic}\n%^T%?")
                                    ("c" "Contact - BBDB" entry (file+headline "~/My Dropbox/gtd/notes.org" "Notes")
                                     "* %^t %^{Contact type|Call|Meeting} with %:name - %^{subject} %^G\n%a\n%?")
                                    ("C" "Contact - no BBDB" entry (file+headline "~/My Dropbox/gtd/notes.org" "Notes")
                                     "* %^t %^{Contact type|Call|Meeting} with %^{name} - %^{subject} %^G\n%?")
                                    ("x" "Index item" entry (file+headline "~/My Dropbox/gtd/notes.org" "Notes")
                                     "* %^t %^{topic}        page %^{book--page number} %^G")
                                    ("q" "Quick capture (inbox)" entry (file "~/My Dropbox/gtd/capture.org")
                                     "* %^{description}")
                                    ("t" "TODO" entry (file+headline "~/My Dropbox/gtd/gtd.org" "08 Todos")
                                                           "* TODO %^{todo description} %^G\n%u")
                                    ("p" "Project" entry (file+headline "~/My Dropbox/gtd/gtd.org" "05 Projects")
                                     "* %^{Project description} %^G           :project:\n%u")
                                    ("r" "RFS" entry (file+headline "~/My Dropbox/gtd/gtd.org" "06 RFS")
                                     "* %^{yyyymmyy description rfs no} %^G          :project:%u")
                                    ("i" "Invoice" entry (file+headline "~/My Dropbox/gtd/invoicing.org" "Invoicing")
                                     "* TODO %^{Supplier|supplier1|supplier2|supplier3} %^{Account} invoice %^{Invoice number} - £%^{Amount Ex VAT} - %^{Date (dd mmm yy)}\n%u"

I am experiencing some strange behaviour when using the last option
(Invoice) on my XP machine. The template inserts a strange character (I
don't recognise it but it looks like an upper case A with a symbol above
it) immediately before the £ sign.

This doesn't happen on the Linux machine using the same files, same
template, etc. 

Any ideas? 

Thanks, Paul
