You can see the problem here: (may be broken in IE)
This is because they're in UTF-8. If you convert from UTF-8 to iso-8869
you'll get the right symbols. Seems you hit some special cases where the
second character matches the ascii one.
Would it be another character, like á you would find Ã¡ but that á and Ã
are both As is just by luck.
