It *does* support UTF-8, but it requires a proper BOM at start of file,
otherwise it cannot be sure what the encoding is. I think Stefan has
just improved the auto-recognition so it will find UTF-8 with no BOM
more easily now.

Stefan, how hard would it be to add a menu to allow the user to specify
the encoding to use? Default would be 'Auto' as it is now, but the user
could override that if needed.
