Opening UTF-16BE Text Files
This section provides a tutorial example on how to open a UTF-16BE text file with Nodepad. But Notepad failed to open correctly the UTF-16BE text created by myself.
Now let's try to use Notepad to open the UTF-16BE text file, hello.utf-16be, created from the previous chapter.
1. Run Notepad and click menu File > Open. The open file dialog box comes up.
2. Select the hello.utf-16be text file and select the "Unicode big endian" option in the Encoding field. See the picture below:
3. Click the Open button. The UTF-16BE file opens in the editor incorrectly. See the picture below:
Very bad. This proves that Notepad can not open UTF-16BE text file created by myself.
