Re: A few questions about encoding discovery, copying text, and pasting text in one encoding into text in another encoding

On most systems, editors and all other applications work with Unicode
strings and copy/paste Unicode strings. Other encodings are only used on
input & output, via conversion. The encoding is either implicit in the file
format (e.g., .doc) or declared inside the file syntax (e.g., .xml), or not
(plain text, usually uses the system default).
