Subject Re: Question regarding UTF-8 and property files
Date Fri, 27 May 2011 17:55:02 GMT
This is on a Unix box, there is no BOM in foo.properties.

I just added the BOM to the file:

hitman@bigdog ~/t$ file foo.properties 
foo.properties: UTF-8 Unicode (with BOM) text
hitman@bigdog ~/t$ ant foo
Buildfile: /Users/hitman/t/build.xml

foo:

BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 0 seconds
hitman@bigdog ~/t$ cat test.txt 
Test ?

Same thing.

Any other ideas?  Thanks for the help sofar.
