Hi - I've corrected the names of those routes for you. I haven't been able to work out how those spurious characters got added to the route names though - do you know when they appeared? If you can let me know how to reproduce the problem I can track down what's causing it so we can prevent it occuring in future.
I also have an issue - when renaming routes, they start with the three characters ï»¿ - this means they are then near impossible to find when I want to combine routes.
A character encoding tells the computer how to interpret raw zeroes and ones into real characters. It usually does this by pairing numbers with characters. Words and sentences in text are created from characters and these characters are grouped into a character set. There are many different types of character encodings floating around at present, but the ones we deal most frequently with are ASCII, 8-bit encodings, and Unicode-based encodings.
Thanks for flagging this up. We'll look into it and try to resolve it.
It seems like there might be something amiss character encoding wise?
For example, taking a look at this route: https://www.plotaroute.com/route/635703
It should be named "LetištÄ› Ladná → Bernhardsthaler Teichstüberl" and that's what the smaller text inside the map's black frame says. The big title however reads "LetiÅ¡tÄ› LadnÃ¡ â†’ Bernhardsthaler TeichstÃ¼berl" which is a bit harder to recognise. â˜º
