Re: UTF charset issue with Json files

I made a sample here. If you take the 1st set of files (files encoded with the byte order marks), those use the correct encoding on Windows, Mac, and Linux. However, if a file is missing the BOM, it will depend on what character set ends up displaying the text. The default character set on the Mac ...

Re: UTF charset issue with Json files

Can you try a quick test on the Mac? a) Make a copy of both files you are working with, but rename the files so the copies extensions end with '.utf8'.

UTF charset issue with Json files

Hi, I'm using DiffMerge to compare Json files that we use to update the text content on our web portal and having problems with UTF-8 and special characters. For example, in the last Json file I made on Windows, Notepad++ (Windows), TextEdit (Mac) and DiffMerge all see the text "Curaçao". But when I...
