I have a lot of localized xml files that i need to view in notepad++. Most of those I look at appear correctly, except for Korean. My other applications and files do display in korean (dreamweaver, IE, etc.), but not notepad++. Can anyone tell me why, and/or what I should do to correct this problem? Thanks - Anna
I need to know how to display Japanese?

I'd also like to chime in with a request for Japanese encoding support (in particular, EUC-JP).
Unicode is great, and works for many things, but it doesn't help if the file you are trying to open was encoded with a different language in the first place. (For example, doing a "View Source" with Notepad ++ set as the default html viewer when the page is Japanese, Korean, etc.)
= How to Convert Existing Text Files from Asian languages to UTF-8 =
For Dave, and anyone else interested, here's a workaround for Windows XP with Asian language support enabled:
1. Open the document you are interested in in Notepad (the oldy but goody);
2. Use "Save as..." and select "Save as type:" [Text] ; "Encoding:" [UTF-8] ;
3. Now you should be able to open the file with Notepad++ (because, hopefully,
you've converted the file from X encoding to UTF-8....)
Hope that helps,
Reference for Notepad++ version 3.8:
format = 0/1/2 -> win/unix/mac
encoding = 0/1/2/3/4/5 -> ANSI / UCS2Big / UCS2small / UTF8 / UTF8-BOM*
(UTF minus BOM, i.e. without BOM)
