    Textpad is not a Unicode based editor - the text is handled internally
    in your local code page, windows 1252 or whatever. The only slight
    nod towards Unicode is that it recognizes a UTF-8 BOM when it sees one
    and attempts to convert from/to UTF-8 when opening or saving a file.

    It's a real shame that it works this way - it's a very nice editor
    otherwise, but it's useless for Unicode.
