Talk:Should I save in Unicode or UTF-8?

From DPWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The title of this page is ambiguous. The words "Unicode" and "UTF-8" are often used interchangeably, so it is not clear that the page is presenting an either-or question rather than "Should I or shouldn't I?"

In fact, the whole text makes no sense unless the user is in an application that presents a choice between "unicode" (unspecified) and "utf-8". Can anyone come up with specific contexts where a post-processor would be given this choice? (Contexts other than post-processing are not currently relevant to DP.) If not, this entire page would seem to be pointless. And if there are such apps in regular use, the page should start with an unambiguous "The following applies only to people using X for post-processing".
