From the comments on the Introducing Scratchpad blog post http://blog.mozilla.com/devtools/2011/08/15/introducing-scratchpad/:
Great, but when i save a file with utf-8 characters in it (greek)
it comes back with strange characters….
How can i save a file from scratchpad with utf-8 or other
Which encoding are we using by default? If it's not utf-8, it seems like saving as utf-8 would be a good step. Of course, not everyone uses utf-8 so it may make sense at some point to offer the ability to set the encoding.
We're doing developer tool prioritization, filter on 'brontozaur'
to ignore the spam.
This seems to be working now ... try with the following text:
Εδώ είναι μερικές ελληνικό κείμενο
Works fine when using either orion or textarea as the editor.
Maybe this is a windows only problem as utf-8 is not default on that OS.
Nope, works fine on windows too.
Works for me.
Are you sure you are saving the file? The moment the file is saved it's contents are garbled for me on Nightly. Actually, this is the same as bug 702144, which has a patch in it. So, I think we should mark this one as duplicate, even though it was filed earlier.
I see, so this happens for some user but not for others. Reading bug 702144 this is certainly a duplicate.
