Swedish characters in names are replaced by question marks. How do I render them properly?

I have downloaded extracts of the Swedish 1880-1990 censuses. When opening them, all the Swedish characters in name strings have been replaced by question marks.

E.g.
NAMELAST
Eketr?
Jernstr?m
S?flund
Byd?n

This is irregardless of file format and the tool I open the extract with. How do I download/open the census extracts properly to not lose ÅÄÖ characters?

Answers

Thank you for alerting us to this issue. We are sorry about the misspecified character formatting in these strings. The technology that is supposed to handle the characters when transferring data from our internal area to the web extract system is not working properly. Our IT team is working on the problem. We will get it corrected as soon as possible.
