Yep, you can even see the string broken into unicode chars:

irb(main):009:0> src.scan(/./u)
=> ["W", "H", "E", "N", "\302\240", "N", "O", "N", "E", "M", "P", "T", 
"Y", "\302\240", "@", "h", "o", "r", "i", "z", "o", "n", "t", "a", "l", 
"-", "f", "e", "a", "t", "u", "r", "e", "d", "-", "i", "t", "e", "m", 
"-", "t", "e", "x", "t", "2"]

You need double-quotes, not single-quotes, for the \nnn syntax to be 
turned into single bytes.

irb(main):011:0> src.split("\302\240")
=> ["WHEN", "NONEMPTY", "@horizontal-featured-item-text2\n"]
