What is it?
This Air app. should take an ANSI or other unusually formatted text file, and save it out as UTF-8.
The need for this app. is pretty simple, really. If you make a Macro - don't shudder - to export MS Office content to text files (like, xml files) you can't specify the encoding of the outputted files. Although the content makes it out, it's encoded in (usually) Windows-1252 format (aka ANSI). When Flash - or many other XML-reading products, like Internet Explorer or Firefox - import the XML file, and come across incorrectly encoded characters, they tend to crash and burn. If the file is properly saved as UTF-8 however, everyone plays nicely. Now this can be done by opening the file in notepad and changing the encoding type, but that wouldn't be so fun, would it?
When can I try it?
A safe, stable version should be available aroundabout the 9th April. (Conventiently just after the Adobe On Air tour)
