EmEditor supports Unicode natively since the whole program is built as as Unicode application.
You can open a file with any encoding supported in the Windows system, and easily convert from one encoding to another within EmEditor. You can open Unicode file names and search for Unicode characters. The Unicode support is a must for anyone who uses international languages. The ability to open and edit files as Unicode makes it the preferred encoding method for multiple language support because it can display multiple languages at the same time. EmEditor even supports Unicode characters outside of the Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP); therefore it can display CJK Extension B characters (as long as a supporting font is available on the system) and Extended Katakana. As long as a supporting font is available, EmEditor can display the CJK Extension B characters. The Unicode character code is displayed in five hexadecimal digits.
To open a file with a specific encoding, click the Open toolbar button or press CTRL+O, and choose the encoding you want to open a file with, from the Encoding drop-down list. After you open a file, you can reload the file with a different encoding.
