This morning, I noticed that none of my R related posts had appeared on R-bloggers for the past fortnight… After investigating, this was caused by…cut-and-paste! Indeed, when advertising about the special issue of TOMACS Arnaud Doucet and I edit about Monte Carlo methods in Statistics, I copied the main parts from the pdf announcement, straight out of Acrobat, and the word “field” was used, involving a ligature between the f and the i that did not get copied in proper UTF-8:

error on line 434 at column 330: Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding ! Bytes: 0x0C 0×65 0x6C 0×64

So here are the entries in the ‘Og for the past 16 days that could have been of interest for R-bloggers readers:

Filed under: Books, R, University life Tagged: Acrobat, cut and paste, Og, pdf, R, R-bloggers, typos, UTF-8
