L18n errors

Hi everybody,

I followed the instructions on http://guides.rubyonrails.org/i18n.html
exspesly point 2.2 and I couldn’t get it to work properly. After I
decided to disable it, my whole application crashed and no View or
Controller is working. Any suggestions on this error?

syntax error on line 140, col 13: ` H� 4� �

The snippet at the bottom is the last call on the stack.
def YAML.load( io )
yp = parser.load( io )
end
with regards
