I open a New file from the File menu in the POVRary3_7_Unofficial software. I
then enter:



using the double quote key just  nest to the Resturn key on my Macbook Pro
keyboard.

Then I save the file as demo.pov.

Then I render, and I get this error:

"/Users/davidarnold/Documents/temp/demo.pov"
 line 1
Parse Error: Illegal character in input file, value is d2.

If I open a new file and save it as demo.pov, then enter the code



I get the same error.
