what codepage are you using? what codepage(s) are the missing characters in? 
perhaps a different codepage is needed to be able to represent both?

i ran into something similar in other products where a text file was being seen 
as UTF-8 because it contained double byte characters... the solution was to tell 
that editor to "convert" (not really) to ANSI (yes, wrong nomenclature) and then 
the display the file using WIN-1252... the characters in question were Cyrillic...
