Hi,
When I edit html with notepad, it saves files as ANSI by default. I searched web for this subject and most answers seem to say that's the right way to save html file. However, when I take my saved file to a different PC and open it with notepad, I often see extra dots where carriage return should be. I wonder why? Could it be due to different versions of notepad?
Anyway, if my html has UTF-8 encoding, should not I save the html file as UTF8 rather than ANSI after editing it with notepad?
Thanks. :?:

You should be using notepad++, makes life a little easier.

But yes it was saved in a different encoding and opened in another.

It has different encoding options likewise. Is ANSI still the best choice or should I save with the same encoding as my html (in my case UTF-8)?

you can save your html to utf8 in notepad if you change the encoding type from ansi to utf8 during the saving process
