Hello!

This is my scenario:

- Configuration: Indigo SR1, Windows, n projects with no relation between them, one workspace. Workspace encoding configuration: all default (cp1252)

- Project 1: configured to use UTF-8 (I need all resources to be UTF-8)

- Project 2: configured to use ISO-8859-1 (I need all resources to be ISO-8859-1)

- What is going on: the resources on project 2 (ISO-8859-1) that should use ISO-8859-1, like html or xml, is actually using UTF-8 because the XML/HTML files configuration says it should use UTF-8 and ignore the project specific configuration. Even if the file have <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>.

Anybody knows if that is a new feature in Indigo and I should be doing something diferent or if that is a bug?

Sorry about the poor english.

Thanks,

Diogo Sant'Ana

This works as expected: the content specific encoding wins.
Unfortunately there's https://bugs.eclipse.org/194002 which doesn't
allow to remove that encoding. Your only workaround is to set the
encoding on each file.

Dani,

Thanks for the reply. I was afraid someone would say that.
I guess I will have to work with more then one workspace, one for ISO-8859-1 and another for UTF-8.

But I have one more question: you said "this works as expected", I ask why? Why it gotta be like that? To me makes more sense to use the project configuration.

Thanks again.

Because for those files, the specification explicitly defines the
encoding (e.g. ISO-8859-1 for Java properties files).
