Eclipse can support these encodings.  The issue is, Eclipse only displays a limited set of Unicode-friendly encodings in the dropdowns for a resource's Properties > Resource > Text File Encoding or in the General > Workspace > Text File Encoding.  

But you can manually type in the encoding name in the combo box, and Eclipse will allow it if your JRE supports the encoding.  ("ANSI" is probably called "Cp1252", BTW.)

Note, you probably need to send the output file into your project's hierarchy in order to access the properties which will allow you to specify the encoding.  (I.e. File > Open File... doesn't let you select the encoding.)
