Aba automatically recognizes UTF-8 and UTF-16 LE files and handles them appropriately.
In rare cases, the file encoding may be recognized incorrectly, and you will be unable to search for extended ASCII characters in the file.
If you have the problem with encodings, please type the regular expression
^^ to see all files in your folder and view them in the context viewer. If any of the files is displayed incorrectly, you should:
Metatag. For example, use the following tag for the code page 1252 (Latin-1, Western Europe):
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=windows-1252">.
The encoding is shown in the right lower corner of the window (near to the selected file name), for example, file.htm, Win Latin-1 or file.htm, Unicode UTF-8.
The usual problem is specifying a wrong encoding in the
Meta tag, for example, tagging Win Latin-1 file as ISO Latin-1. You should correct such tags, because the file will be incorrectly handled not only by Aba, but also by many web browsers.
