I doubt that the chunking makes any difference.

JMeter uses Java HTML document to display the response. I don't know
if it can handle UTF-16.

That's not proof that the contents are OK - do you not have an
application that can display the data properly?

No, you cannot extract variables out of saved files - UTF-16 or otherwise.

However, you should be able to extract variables out of the response data.

Is there a publically accessible page that returns data encoded in this way?

Does JMeter work OK for you if the encoding is set to UTF-8 (assuming
that there are such pages on the server under test)?
