But there is anything invisible between the B and the r, because when I switch the position of the insertion point with the arrow keys, I must enter the arrow key twice to step from the position after the B to the position after the r. Another display failure occurs with the German sharp S (ß). DTPO replaces the sharp S by the section symbol (§).

What input encoding are you using in your file? Plain ASCII doesn't have the accented characters as part of the font. I don't know anything about DTPO but I suspect you'll have to change the encoding it uses to read the file and, possibly the display font.
