I get the extra  Â 's if I use chrome, firefox, chromium, or konqueror.
I don't particularly mind seeing the  Â 's. But they are a bit of a
nuisance when I select text and insert it into some file.

I will just have to get used to removing them. I could teach
norms-cool-editor to defaultly ignore them, or at least to not write them.
Maybe I will.
