Yes, I meant the code specifying the Japanese characters.
Since they haven't been changed in the source, I'm assuming something 
went bad when committing the new generated HTML file, or possibly 
something went wrong with the build itself.

It's not that often you commit changes involving characters that cannot 
be correctly represented in your default encoding.
I guess we've seen the same before when using some of the Norwegian 
names in the commit messages (i.e. Jørgen, Øystein, Grøvlen).
As usual, the encoding issue is a bit of a mess; the encoding of the 
file, the encoding used by your terminal/IDE and the encoding 
used/expected by Subversion...
