I don't know the answer, but I saw a recent conversation about this, which you may not have seen:
I believe you need to switch the encoding to UTF-8
Look for Bassem's answers in the link above.
Hope that helps!
I have seen that conversation and I tried changing the encoding to UTF-8 in Notepad ++ but it did not help.
Should I post my question on that thread so that Bassem and others can reply?
Apologies for the delayed reply
There is a new version of 9 just released, this line made me think of your question.... and hope it may fix the problem!
In reply to your question, yes, of course, reply to the other post, then if there is a solution/ updates you should get notified (depending how you st up your notifications!)
Hope something there helps, apologies haven't been able to fix it completely
