In this case the Eclipse compiler running on the build machine failed to
parse a particular source file encoding.  We could fix it using the
"-encoding <name>" argument, but it would be good for all our source
files to be generally readable by simple text editors, etc.

I would think the safest option is to use ASCII (and escape other
characters).

Tim
