Dear Adam, I'm not sure what you are saying. The Accented Characters doc and the Accented Characters html accessed from the Miscellaneous Wiki page are not virused and not malicious either. Perhaps Norton sees the different characters and assumes there is a problem? As Mark Wilcox introduces what he is doing with these words: "Windows incorporates a method to semi-logically be able to generate any of the accented characters without resorting to a reference chart, or, alternatively, type in a foreign language, typically western European, that uses our alphabet with accented characters, such as Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, and so forth without learning said language's non-QWERTY keyboard in order to access the characters." He has examples of the kinds of characters you can write. In order to protect the wiki we do not allow file extensions to be loaded that can have viruses attached. Mark uploaded the "doc" through ftp during the time when he was a wiki administrator and it is fine.
