A simple text editor that comes with Windows. It has a companion called WordPad that lets you create formatted RTF (Rich Text Format) documents. NotePad lets you select the encoding when you do save as.
|Notepad File Formats|
|ANSI (American National Standards Institute)||no BOM (Byte Order Mark). Usually 8-bit chars. The standard code page on a system e.g. Windows-1252 encoding.|
|Unicode||16-bit chars. BOM on start. little-endian, low order 8 bits come first. This is also what WordPad Unicode creates.|
|Unicode big endian||16-bit chars. BOM on start. big-endian, high order 8 bits come first. Network Standard.|
|UTF-8||8-bit chars, with multi-char sequences. BOM on start.|

If you want your message, your name or email kept confidential, not considered for public posting, please explicitly specify that. Unless you state otherwise, I will treat your message as a letter to the editor that I may or may not publish in the feedback section. After that, it will be too late to retract it. If you disagree with something I said, especially when sending an ad-hominem attack, a rant composed mainly of obscenities or a death threat, please quote the offending passage and cite the web page where you found it, tell me why you think it is wrong, and, if possible, provide some supporting evidence. I can’t very well fix erroneous or ambiguous text if I can’t find it.
