I will be happy if MT4 supports UTF-8 source files.

Currently, MT4 build 6xx supports system locale codepage encoding and UTF-16LE.

UTF-16LE is locale-independent encoding, but has the following problem:

  • Some tools recognize UTF-16LE files as binary (ex. git).
  • Not only tools but also some of web services treat UTF-16LE files as binaries (ex. GitHub).

I hope MetaEditor supports UTF-8, additionaly, use it as default encoding.

To say again, UTF-16LE is not de facto.
