and open them properly like utf-8 documents?
because open office has unicode utf-7 and utf-8 and libreoffice has
utf-7, utf-8 and utf-16.
whats the difference between unicode and unicode utf-8?
thanks and god bless you all.
Unicode is a standard for representing text in a form which can be
used by computers (i.e. a series of numbers). It basically assigns a
number to each of thousands of characters used in different languages.
It also defines several encodings which can be used to represent those
numbers in memory or on disk; UTF-8 and UTF-16 are probably the most
common. When dealing with plain text files, you need to know which
encoding is used, not just that it's "Unicode", in order to read it
There's a lot more detail, e.g. here:
The one thing that confuses some users is the fact that Unicode fonts
are not alike displaying the characters. Is you look at them using the
"insert special characters" option in Writer, you will find that each
font will have a different set of Unicode characters available. I just
seems to me that most of the ones I have tried just do not want to
include the "full set" of the available characters. Arial Unicode MS
seems to me to have the most Unicode characters included within the font
file. It would be nice to find a free font that includes all the
characters that the Arial Unicode font includes.
