It's saving the text you give it. But without an encoding declaration, your
file is not valid in Python 2. The first or second line needs to look like:
# coding: utf-8
The %save magic, which is designed for Python code, adds this
automatically. But the %%file magic is for writing arbitrary text, so it
doesn't check or change the text before saving it.
