Dear all,

Many thanks for all the responses, those so far and future ones. I think
the "can save in different encodings" aspect has been answered well.

I am tempted to respond, but it'll be better to explore and compare more
first - and some details were implicit in my first email. Ideal would be
an editor that gives me previews in an easy-to-use encoding selection
menu that in addition highlights fully or almost-compatible encodings,
highlights (after loading) positions in the file that don't conform to
the requested encoding (and lets me choose how to handle them), /and/
knows different versions of encodings. As some codepages had minor
additions or corrections in later versions, it'd be useful to have an
editor that offers the choice to access earlier versions of encodings -
this is clearly specialist usage but the knowledge exists.
