Currently I'm not sure. Such an option is NOT available in 4.52 - oh my. No function to replace Notepad or check the "news" either. I could really go for a better fix I suppose. However I ignored the unicode concept so it's possible.
I'll have to reinstate -- 5.61 is the most current archive I have -- to check it out.

Now here's the tricky part. To me, it just seemed like an ordinary ASCII-based HTML file. It's certainly not always obvious to me. Alas, this COULD be the situation, I guess. However, this has never been explained to me. It's just been an endless source of flustration. So I'll check it out tonight and get back to you on that. I hope it's that simple - well, it wasn't simple to me.
