For example, my system language is English (US) now, and I want to open a Japanese encoded text.
I double clicked the text file and:
7.02 and below would display “Some characters cannot be converted using the specified encoding. The file will be corrupted if you continue editing and save the file.”. Then “OK” to continue or “Cancel”.
8.00 would “flash” (may be this was the notify?). And then nothing happened.
I tried Japanese (Shift-JIS) text in both 7.02 and 8.00 using English (US) Windows, but in both cases, the warning does not appear. In this case, opening Shift-JIS text as Western European and Save as Western European does not corrupt the Japanese text. That is why the warning was not necessary. Opening an European text in Japanese Windows can show the warning because that process can corrupt the original text.
