We have identified the issue and will log it for fixing in a future release of AppBuilder.
Until then, the solution is to change the encoding of your file. Go to File -> Advanced Save Options and set Unicode (UTF-8 with signature) as the current encoding. Re-save your file and try running your app in the simulator again.
Let us know if you need more help.
