1. Open Notepad
2. Type "Bush hid the facts" without quotes
3. Save it
4. Close the Notepad window, and reopen the same file.

This seems to be a variation of the "this app can break" bug in notepad mentioned in this thread:

As mentioned in that other thread, those squares are actually chinese characters. I had asked a chinese friend what it meant but she said that its just jibberish.
Apparently the error is caused by certain combinations of text which throw off the encoding of the file and for some reason it defaults to Chinese.

I didnt know about the bush one though, thanks for mentioning it.
