The cover letter should have saved and uploaded as 'Unicode (UTF-7)' type of text encoding since the text contains special characters. As a workaround, the cover letter may be saved to see the correct value of the special characters.
As an example below, the cover letter was saved and uploaded as 'Unicode (UTF-7)' type of text encoding and cover letter shows the correct value of the special characters.
