    Using EmEditor 6.00.02 I created a file containing Chinese characters by clicking New and pasting Chinese text into the page. I then did a Save As, selecting UTF-8 encoding and no byte order mark.

    Looking at the saved file in a hex editor, I can see that the file is saved in UTF-16LE with a BOM. Not what I asked for.

    Did I miss something?

    I don’t believe it is EmEditor’s issue. Please let me know which hex editor you use, and exactly what you get in the hex editor. Please send me the samples and other detailed information at tech@emurasoft.com

    I used UltraEdit 12.20a to view the files. And, never mind. The problem is UltraEdit.

    Thanks,

    I received an email from the UltraEdit support people today. It turns out this is a known bug in version 12: When you hex view, UE shows you the internal representation of the file, which is always UTF-16, and not what the file itself contains.

    This is fixed in UltraEdit 13.

    Thanks for your attention,
