What is the "encoding type" you save as for the notepad ?

For your 2nd question, it's because CON is reserved by Microsoft. It's also known as CONSOLE. Thus, you won't be able to save the filename as CON.

Do a search in google.com and you will find out exactly why.

you are right, mine comes out in chinese too, they are called easter eggs and there are quite a few(google for them then), funny to think that when you look at an old church too, there are quite a few jokes to had about the people of that age from the little pranks they leave in the stonework
