Should be utf8 without BOM.

It's a de facto standard on the internet, and heavily used elsewhere too.

Once you make this move to utf8, should be the last charset issue you (and us) will ever have.

Us mostly. After 2 and a half year using FG, I just discoevered the “accented name files bug with cache” which was a pain in the ass.

UTF8 without BOM, pleeeeeeeeeeeease, pretty pretty pleeeeeeeeeease…

UTF8 at least, but I would just go UTF-16 if you want future proofing for the next decade or more.

How in the world did it happen that the application in 2020 does not have UTF8 support?!!
