the "enrollment" -> "export course list" feature has problems with special characthers (like the Norwegian æ, ø, å characters). See attached export for an example - the name with the bug should be "Håvard".

Did you try opening the csv without using MS Excel?

I did now, works fine in both Open Office and Google Docs, but not Excel. Is this a bug in Excel then?

I tried even with notepad and some other text editor, seems to be fine.

I guess Excel pre-assumed everything is in ISO88591 unless you specifically set the language in its option.
