    Hi,
    Your program is great, i was looking for a free IDE a bit like Quanta+ for ages, and i think i've found it :-).

    I would like to know if Notepad+ can use UTF-8 caracter encoding. Now many document are encoded this way (XML files mostly) and special caracters are shown with 2 ISO-8859-1 caracters (since UTF-8 is 16bit encoded).

      Notepad++ dees support the Unicode (UTF-8 and UCS-2) encoding from v2.2.

        I'm asking because i've loaded a UTF-8 encoded file, but it was read as ISO-8859-1. How can I change that ?

          Do you mean it is displayed as ISO-8859-1?
          Sure, otherwise I don't see how can you edit them.
          But it will be saved as UTF-8 encoded file.

          Ok, Nicolas,

          Indeed, I checked by opening a UTF-8 file.
          in the v2.3 it displays the ISO-8859-1 character.
          Whereas it diplays correctly in v2.2.

          I'll tried to find out where is the problem.

            There's no problem to open the UTF-8 encoding file for v2.3. Could you send me the UTF-8 file to test?

            Thanks

          could you send me your UTF-8 file (zipped) to : don.h@free.fr
          in order that I can test it? thanks
