- Subject: UTF-8 character encoding
I'm looking at
and it starts off with
Use UTF-8 character encoding.
How do I do that and how do I check that I actually did use UTF-8
character encoding _without_ using file?
for whatever it's worth:
$ file unicode.html
unicode.html: HTML document, UTF-8 Unicode text
$ file test.c
test.c: C source, ASCII text
I used vi to create both files & I'd like to understand why file says
one is ascii & the other is utf-8
