Encoding Help

If you find that the importer strips special characters (such as umlauts or curly quotes) from your work, or fails to import whole chunks of text, there might be a problem with the automatic detection of your work's encoding. UTF-8 is a common encoding, but there are others that you might have to manually put in to help the importer handle your work.

If you're unsure what encoding your text is using, try ISO-8859-1 (often called Latin-1) or Windows-1252 (sometimes wrongly called ANSI), both of which are very common in the output from Windows programs.
