    Default Bonjour Mon Amis

    I am an IT Grad and have not done any java programming before. However, my SUPERSMART wife is now working on her 3rd Masters and itś in IT.

    She is on her first Java Programming course and as so I am attempting to get my Raspberry PI3 setup for her to use. However this day I have a problem I was
    hoping some of you may help us in:

    I have been working on the pi3 for about a month and just realized i had an error when I was attempting to compile an easy java program.
    The error I am sure is tied to the fact that the pi3 has ¨UK¨"as itś default keyboard. So i went to the terminal and did a cat on /etc/default/keyboard file and it
    showed UK as the default. I did a vim on it and changed it to the ¨us¨ and saved it.

    Later I did a reboot but the problem is still there and here is the error code from the bluej java logfile.txt:

    /home/pi/Letty_Java/firstprog/firstprog/firstprog.java:13: error: illegal character: '\u00a8'
    System.out.println(¨WELCOME LETICIA¨);

    Sure could use help from all you CS/IT people!

    The compiler complaint is because your String quotes are not really String quotes. Did you cut and paste the program from somewhere? A website perhaps?

    They should be standard double quotes, like this "
    System.out.println("WELCOME LETICIA");
