Perl-Sensitive Sunglasses

At the initial standardization period there were a number of Unicode transport protocols, some of them really weird (7-bit UTF for one). As of now Notepad++ is pretty straightforward with what needed. It has in its settings:
  • ANSI
  • UTF-8 (default, plus switch "Apply to open ANSI files")
  • UTF-8 with BOM
  • UCS-2 Big Endian with BOM
  • UCS-2 Little Endian with BOM
  • other (long-long list)
The rule of thumb is that default UTF-8 + "Apply to open ANSI files" is the only thing one ought to use.
Anything else is only for two distinct situations: 1) one got some unreadable chunk of chars from a 3rd party file and needs to make it readable Unicode 2) one is seeking for new oops-type adventures for (her|him)self and for end users.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
