    Can we please get rid of this grotesque, nonsense and absolutely confusing "ANSI as UTF-8" in the status line?

    I think "UTF-8 without BOM", which is used in the menu, is correct. After all, a file is a bytestream. Even if the first bytes are EF BB BF, you never can be sure it _is_ UTF-8 text. You can assume an encoding and use it and state - in the status line - which encoding NPP actually uses for reading and writing. This may be UTF-8 with or without BOM, or may be Windows codepage 1252 (which I would not "ease" to "ANSI", because this is the next source of confusion). It cannot be "ANSI as UTF-8".

    Big thanks for this software!
