    Recently i had an issue with an XML file, the creator of the file told me the encoding was UTF-8. The actual encoding was ANSI/Windows Codepage 1252. Emeditor automatically opened the file as UTF-8 (the status bar indicated “UTF-8 Without Signature”).

    The file contained (U+00C9) with it’s ANSI encoding. Emeditor did not display this character.

    I can only guess that this file was opened as UTF-8 because of the xml encoding declaration.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    I would like a warning to be generated when opening the utf-8 encoded XML file containing an invalid code-point. It would also be useful for the incorrectly encoded characters to be displayed in the editor somehow, in the same places where they are encountered.

    I am still using Emeditor 8.0, apologies if this has been implemented already.

    I couldn’t reproduce your issue. Can you send me a sample file to tech@emurasoft.com? I will try to reproduce your issue. Thank you!
