  I've never seen this problem, but one possiblity is that
the file contains some bytes whose 8th bit is on and BBEdit
misinterpreted the file as Shift-JIS encoded Japanese text.

  Try to see if it is the case or not with some tools, or
Squeak.  In Squeak, suppose the file is named '', you
can verify it by evaluating the following code in a

 ((FileStream oldFileNamed: 'memo.txt') binary
contentsOfEntireFile select: [:byte | byte >= 128]) size > 0

If it says true, the file contains such byte(s).
