Thanks for making this PM entry.

I'd like to add that sometimes, when I try to add a 'special' character, there comes a PowerLanguage Editor popup saying just: "The parameter is incorrect", with an 'Ok' button.

Any update on this bug? Especially the missing of the Euro sign is annoying.

in German Keyboard I can't enter the characters ä, ö, ü and ß in Powerlanguage editor.
Kinda annoying if you can't enter them in comments.

If in comments, PL Editor should accept every Character one enters.
