When a UTF-8-encoded hyphen (U+2010) is copied from a browser (I tried Firefox and IE) and then pasted to programs such as Putty and Vim (the Windows variants), all hyphens are showed as 'unknown glyphs'. Pasting to Notepad works flawlessly. Copying/pasting in Debian/wheezy of the very same HTML text (copying from iceweasel, pasting to vim) also works as expected.
But the utf-8 character is not crippled. Saving to disk resp. copying and pasting of the crippled text works as designed.
The real problem that I have to solve is with Confluence and its export function to a docx file. HTML is displayed OK, docx shows the unsigned glyphs, copying from docx to Notepad shows the hyphens in the pasted text.
What could I do to solve this?
