Type the phrase "bush hid the facts"
Do not press enter
Save the file.
Open the file & see whats written.
Reason: There is no magic in the above phrase. This trick will mostly work with combination 4 - 3 - 3 - 5 letters. (bush has 4 letters, hid has 3 letters and so on). It happens due to some conflict in chinese & english encoding for text.
In simple words.....there are several encodings available but unfortunately for chinese & english encoders there are certain things common. Since notepad analyses any text file as a combination of bytes, it fails to encode the combination and gives out a garbage value.
This error is not observed if:
1) The system has the required encoder OR
2) The text is longer, so that it's easier for Notepad to judge which encoder to be used.
