I read in tommy’s article on character encoding that the best general purpose encoding is utf-8 without BOM. I also saw many people saying that notepad++ is good, so i downloaded it. Anyway in notepad++ I dont think you can really choose UTF-8 without BOM. When you choose UTF, UTF without BOM is greyyed but it isnt when you choose ANSI, its bugged or something. Anyway any text-editors where you can choose UTF-8 without BOM without problems?
Also how can you check what encoding your saving a file as? (except for what that the text-editor is telling you)
