File encodings differ when you move outside of standard ASCII code. Not really R's problem, but it is a fly in the ointment when teaching classes with mixed laptop armoury and there are also differences between classroom and desktop computers. RStudio does have features to switch encodings, but I usually sidestep the issue by commenting scripts in English.

Obviously under the hood there are significant differences, but as far as code goes, R seems quite foolproof. There are GUI differences in base R - but AFAIK no such differences in the RStudio IDE.
