I haven't seen any problems with UTF-8.

Which language packs are on this machine?

What characters are supposed to be in the areas that are not displaying correctly?

Would you be able to send me a sample file that isn't working?

DiffMerge does support UTF-8. By default it will look for a Byte Order Mark (BOM) at the beginning of the file to determine the encoding used for that file. In the absence of a BOM, your System Default will be used.

This is all configurable, however. Go to Tools -> Options, and under "File Windows" you'll see "Rulesets". Here you can set the encoding (and other settings) for various types of files, determined by file suffix (extension). There is also a Default that is used when no suffix match is found.

For each Ruleset you can choose the character encoding, or you can choose to Ask when the file is loaded.

Hope this helps.
