The Encoding preferences panel is opened from menu Encoding
Figure 5.4. The Encoding preferences panel
- Encoding for non XML files
This option defines the default encoding to be used when opening
non XML documents. This is necessary because non XML files have a
large variety of formats and there is no standard mechanism for
declaring the encoding that should be used for opening and saving
the file. In case of XML files the encoding is usually declared at
the beginning of the file in a special declaration or it assumes the
default value UTF-8.
- Encoding errors handling
This option defines how to handle characters that cannot be
represented in the specified encoding of the document when the
document is opened. The available options are:
REPORT - Show an error dialog with the character that
cannot be represented in the specified encoding and allow
the user to decide how to continue (ignore that character,
replace it with a standard replacement character). This is
the default option.
IGNORE - The character is ignored and it will not be
included in the document displayed in the editor
REPLACE - Replace the character with a standard
replacement character. For example if the encoding is UTF-8
the replacement character has the Unicode code
FFFD, and if the encoding is ASCII the
character code is 63.
