Incorrect syntax near ‘ÿ’

I am trying to run scripts using OSQL/ISQL. Both time I am getting the error "Incorrect syntax near ‘ÿ’". If I copy the scripts on Query Analyser, it works perfectly fine. there seems no foreign character in the scripts also. Please Help
I was using /U /P to define the User Name etc. I changed that to -U -P, and its working fine now. Any explanations?
I believe /U/P were used in previous version of SQL and from SQL 2K its replaced with -. Satya SKJ
