Fails to recognize UTF-8 encoding

Postby DrLightman » Wed Jul 10, 2019 6:33 am


opening two text files both created and recognized correctly by other text editors as UTF-8 encoded (no BOM), are not recognized as such by WInMerge, and wrong characters are shown.

Encoding is detected erroneously as 1252(windows-1252)

I didn't find any option to tweak on this aspect.

Here is what I get:


I should get:

Code: Select all
$out .= 'sì' . '<br>';


Thank you

Can you share the files in question? Hard to diagnose without access to the files.
