text encoding, emacs and LaTeX.
I would like to know how to check the encoding of a text file (UTF-8? Latin-1? other?).
All the editors I use on my computer (emacs, kwrite) seem to code by default in UTF-8, but LaTeX seems to assume the file is latin-1. Therefore, I have to change the encoding each time I write a new file.
So, my questions are:
- how to check the encoding of a text file?
- how to force a text editor (emacs, for example) to use a specific encoding by default?
- how to make LaTeX accept UTF-8?
Thank you in advance for your answer to any of these questions.
