Public bug reported:
In Gnome Gedit 2.16.1:
When trying to open an ascii text file that, amongst useful mathematica code, has a few corrupt characters, gedit refuses to open the file and insists that the user select the correct character encoding.
Open the slightly corrupt file for editing and display a special symbol where the characters have not been recognised using the current character encoding. A warning stating the character encoding was not recognised would be helpful but should not prevent gedit working.
** Affects: gedit (Ubuntu)
