Yes it does. Although you can't see it, you copied all the windows formatting overhead. Way to get around that is to use an interim text editor like Windows Notepad. Paste to Notepad from the Windows app, then copy and paste to Notepad++ and convert the page format to utf-8 in Notepad++. Another useful free editor for windows users is PSPad. It helps you convert old html to xhtml and can help with character encoding also. It does far more complicated things too, but for the problem you're having it can help.
