Default Hidden Easteregg in Notepad

[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Here is a hidden easteregg about notepad I found on some site. Ive tested it myself and it works:

1. Open up Notepad (not Wordpad, not Word or any other wordprocessor)
2. Type in this sentence exactly (without quotes): "this app can break"
3. Save the file to your harddrive.
4. Close Notepad
5. Open the saved file by double clicking it.

It wont crash the app, it will change the text to chinese or if you dont have the chinese language pack installed on your PC it will change to squares.

I got a chinese friend to try and transulate this for me, its just jibberish in Chinese. Also, it turns out this isnt a microsoft easteregg. With those series of characters, MS loses/screws the encoding of file which for some reason gets switched to Chinese. This is a bug, not an easteregg.

Microsoft has a bug in their software? That's unheard of.

Cool, How do people find out about these things?

Do they just type weird things in?
