Max HodgesSubject: Saving XML as Unicode
Author: Max Hodges
Date: 19 Jun 2001 07:02 AM
is there any way to force SStudio to save my XML documents as Unicode instead of UTF8 files? Presently, I must resave them all with Notepad after I edit them.

THanks!

Just specify encoding="ucs-2" in your XML PI.

You can't right now. BTW, what would be the benefit of saving in Java in an
encoding different from UTF-8?

Hi Yodi,

Unfortunately you can not. Is this a strong limitation for you ?
If it is, we will try to add this feature in the next release

Thanks for your answer !

Maybe it is important to users who do not use English.
I hope that you add this feature in next release.

UTF-8 is able to represent any character set.
Anyway, we'll look into what we can do.

Thanks for your feedback,

I am using Japanese characters in my XML. Then open and read these files in VB using the FileSystemObject. If the files are not Unicode, I get garbage, so I must save them to Unicode. I wish I could do this from Stylus. It seems that Stylus is remembering to save my XSL as Unicode, but not my XML. Is there are setting for the format of the XSL, or is unicode just the default?

THanks,
Max

Did you read my answer? If you have an XML PI that specifies
encoding="ucs-2", like:


....then Stylus Studio will save your file as Unicode.
The same applies to XSLT; the default is utf-8, but if you specify
encoding="ucs-2" in the XML PI than the XSL file will be saved as Unicode.

UCS-2 uses 2 bytes for every character (so it can address up to 65536
different symbols), while UCS-4 uses 4 bytes (and the symbols are over 4
millions). So, normally, UCS-2 is sufficient, as it maps the most commonly
used characters, but sometimes you need to switch to UCS-4 (that doubles
the size of the document) or to UTF-16 (pretty much identical to UCS-2 but
it can use more than 2 bytes when needed)

Hope this helps,

Alberto

It may also be worth noting that ucs-2 is the common Unicode representation
on Windows NT systems; some processors (including MSXML I think) don't even
support ucs-4
