Can I get Eclipse to automatically convert smart quotes, dashes, and ellipses to their UTF-8 equivalent? It seems to want to save the smart characters and they show up as gobbledygook on various servers.

As far as I know, in order to make sure all new files are UTF-8, you should right-click on your project, select Properties -> Resource then under Text file encoding select "Other" and choose UTF-8. However according to http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=msg&th=29511 there may be some problems in that.

In order to convert all of your current files to UTF-8, I would suggest using one of the methods described in the Super User question "Batch-convert files for encoding". (I would post the link to it, however I have fewer than 5 posts).

Note that if you don't already, you should have all of your files under source control just in case the conversion process goes wrong.
