when you save a file (save as) you have a option to save it as UTF-8 file that you must select.

Be shure to use a UTF-font in geanys options for the editor-window.
The font bitstream vera supports only some characters (it is in Puppy 2.12).
More characters are supported by DejaVu:

For the tamil language you might need other fonts, there also are special editors like akaram for it.

In seamonkey set DejaVu as standard-font in the preferences.

I'm getting Lobster's error messge and was glad to find this thread.

Mu's instructions are still clear except that when resaving old files that have been modified, I didn't see a format option.

So instead, I closed all files after making necessary changes, went to edit/preferences/files/encoding and selected the utf-8 as default. Then, for re-opening existing files, selected the next box - 'use fixed encoding when opening non-Unicode files'. A hovering dialog suggests "usually not needed" but presumably all your files were previously saved in the Western ISO encoding. I'll be giving this a try plus the suggested browser font and will advise if there are problems.

Note that this may also happen when pasting text generated by word documents as word now has a code for '...'. I wish Bill would leave well enough alone!
