As everyone, I still have encoding problems from time to time. Even if I can avoid most of them by experience, I am very ignorant about ANSI, UTF8 (to which I have a superstitious fervor) and whatsoever weird things
Sometimes I am proud to find the bug and to have spent hours for a "&" in a locale file..
Sometimes I am ashamed of having destroyed the ja-JP locale of a babelZillian friend, just with opening/closing a file with Pspad set for UTF8
So... Some of you seem to know much about that, some others are real hackers, some are dedicated to sorcery code ...
so please post your tricks and tips and knowledge here !
