I grabbed the above line and see below.

"hd" below does much the same thing and is part of the Linux distribution.
I copied your test "file" above and:
gie at charon:~$ echo "Test file: abcdöäå<CR><LF<CR><LF>" >foo
gie at charon:~$ cat foo
Test file: abcdöäå<CR><LF<CR><LF>
gie at charon:~$ hd foo

editors that come with the OS.

Looks somewhat like a copy of vi/vim---I have been using vi since the 80s.
Also KDE's kate does much the same. All part of a Linux distribution.

I doubt it, at least under Linux.
What OS are you using? That dark-age M$? Oh yes, "notepad."
My deepest sympathy. And how much did you pay for M$? Tsk, tsk. When will
