Q. How can I open an XML file as Western European, not as UTF-8?

If an XML file is opened as Unicode, display the Current Configuration Properties, select the File tab, and check Opening Encoding drop-down list box. If this is Unicode, select System Default. If Detect HTML/XML Charset check box is checked, an "encoding=" directive specified within an XML file is searched, and EmEditor uses the specified encoding if the directive is found. Note that the encoding specified for opening files is different from the encoding specified for new files or for saving files.
