Hi,

Originally posted on eclipse.platform and was advised to post here.

Eclipse 3.4 on Linux (was also true in 3.3):

If I create a new *empty* .html file, it is always created with a file
encoding of Shift_JIS, "determined from content". It doesn't matter how
I create the file... I can create an empty, 0 byte file outside of
Eclipse and Eclipse still sets the encoding to Shift_JIS "determined
from content".

If I copy an existing file, containing an html snippet (no headers),
which has UTF-8 content, for which I have manually set the encoding to
UTF-8, to another location, the encoding is reset to Shift_JIS on the copy.

An annoying side note is that when I do reset the encoding type (in
Navigator/Properties), Eclipse tells me UTF-8 conflicts with the content
type *even if the file is empty or contains UTF-8 content*.

This is a major headache for me (apart from the need to manually reset
the content type on every such file) because editing and saving a file
with UTF-8 content, that Eclipse thinks is Shift_JIS, results in
permanently corrupted Japanese text.

Related issue: Somehow in the last few days all of the files (hundreds)
I had painstakingly set to UTF-8 have reverted to Shift_JIS. Don't know
how this happened, but maybe when I was messing with preferences. Is
there any way I can reset the encoding on all the files, rather than
one-by-one?

settings:
---------
env var LANG = ja_JP.utf8

parent folder text file encoding set to UTF-8

preferences:web:html files encoding set to UTF-8

preferences:general:content types:text:html default encoding for all
file associations set to UTF-8

In <project>/.settings/org.eclipse.core.resources.prefs ALL the file
encodings show as UTF-8..... nevertheless, in Navigator/Properties they
show as Shift_JIS.

Am I missing something somewhere? Is this a bug? (Ain't no feature in my
book :) )

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks,
Ed

That does indeed look like the same beastie.

Gets my vote!

Thanks,
