AFAIK, TortoiseMerge, does NOT support UTF-8 at hte moment, nor any other encodings apart from
"native," which is dependent on the platform you use it.

I always thought that it will be very usefull if you can choose then encoding of the displayed text.
Might even be possible to have separate (say drop-down) encodings for left and right pane, but that
is PITA to implement (diff still has to be in UTF-8).

For files like HTML, XML and the like, tags like encoding="Shift_JIS" and the like may be used as an
initial guess, but SHOULD be easy to override this smartness, as there are many misplaced tags like

For now I use gvimdiff (yeah, even on Windoze if necesarry) for such things.
