Please close this or mark it as answered. It is NOT a DevTools problem.

In case it helps anyone stumbling across this, after much investigation, I found that what I was experiencing resulted from data corruption when writing some JSON in Word VBA. The ¦ was being wrongly output by the VBA Print command. The solution was to use VBA File System Object for the Write, which ensured the output file was in UTF-8 rather than Windows 1252. My odyssey in finding this started at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2524703/save-text-file-utf-8-encoded-with-vba.
