Subject RE: Java Default Encoding and Royale Compiler

Java seems [1] to take the system encoding which can vary between windows and other machines.

My main editors are Eclipse (FB) and vim, Eclipse is set to use UTF-8 while vim is using latin1
by default. But in any case, these are easily configurable so I don’t see the harm in requiring
users to encode to UTF-8.

I don't know for sure, but the first question that comes to mind is why
Java itself hasn't bothered to default to a particular file encoding.

Also, especially for folks using Windows, what kinds of editors do you use
and what file encoding do those editors use?

My 2 cents,
