Why is the Internet Explorer Web Development Forum not in the drop down list? RRS feed

        "SDN – ch 52 (20kW), Arqiva A – ch 41(5kW) and Arqiva B – ch 44 (5kW)"
    ... using ...
        aString.replace( new RegExp("\\x96", "gm"),  "-" )

        20 96 20
    Replacing the \\x96 with \\x20 successfully replaces all the blanks in the string.

    What is going on?  Is \\x96 the Devil's number that only a canonised Saint can alter, and then only at the risk of eternal damnation?
