Going back to first principles - what is your script encoded as and run as?
What characters are in your script?
	$ wc -lwmc ...
What does vim say for that script:
	:set enc? tenc? fenc? fencs? eol? bomb?
What does locale say sed runs as:
	$ locale

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
