I confirmed that this is happening in 5.2 beta as well in Notepad. Oddly copying to Libre Office Writer works fine.

@forumaad welcome to trac and thanks for the bug report.

Tried with several text editors including Notepad on Win10 and cannot reproduce. May have something to do with charset/locale in the browser being different that in the OS? Perhaps one is UTF-8 and the other is KOI8-R or similar.

Could you try pasting in another plain text editor, or in a textarea in the same browser. Even just switch to the Text tab, delete the content and paste. Also see what is the locale setting in the browser and in Windows.
