Symptoms

The Verbatim containing a µ character is wrongly displayed in the Distinct Omissions tab. As an example, verbatim "INCREASE IGF1 667 µMG/ML (115-591)" is processed in TMS using the standard TMS API.

The verbatim can then be found as an omission and when querying the TMS_VT_OMISSIONS table, the verbatim is displayed as expected. However, looking in Distinct Verbatim Term Omissions, the term has become:

"INCREASE IGF1 667 ¿MG/ML (115-591)"

But this is true only for that tab. Searching for the same verbatim from tab "All Verbatim Term Omissions", term is correctly displayed. In addition, assigning an action text containing 'µ' to a verbatim causes no problem.

It's also been found that special characters can be displayed in the Distinct Omissions tab as a ¿ character.

Is this the expected behavior?
