First I guess the file you have open in UltraEdit is an ASCII/ANSI file and not a Unicode file and therefore Unicode characters like yours (coded with more than 1 byte) must be converted to ANSI (only 1 byte per character) if this is possible. The conversion from Unicode to ANSI is done with the code page currently selected at Advanced - Set Code Page/Locale
or which is declared in the document and automatically detected and applied by UltraEdit (if the config setting for automatic code page detection is not disabled) or applied manually to current document at View - Set Code Page
. HTML and XML documents should always contain the code page/character set declaration. For example in HTML in section <head>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
is the right one for most Western European and North American Languages.
I use the German page SELFHTML - Zeichenkodierungen
which contains images of some character tables to answer questions like yours. In WikiPedia you can also find many articles about code pages and character sets. I can see your character in the code table of ISO-8859-2 (Latin-2) which is the code table for most Central European and Slavic languages. It has the dezimal code 165. Set the cursor left to your special character and click on Search - Character Properties
. If it shows you the decimal code 165 for this character, I'm right.
Select ISO-8859-2 (Latin-2) at Advanced - Set Code Page/Locale
or View - Set Code Page
. Additionally you have to choose also a font at View - Set Font
, View - Set HEX/Column Mode Font
, View - Set Printer Font
which supports the code page you need and has the correct glyph
for your character. You must specify also the correct Script in the font settings dialog. If I'm right, the script you need is Central European.
The format of the current file is displayed in the status bar at bottom of the UltraEdit window. See my readme topic where I have explained what the abbreviations for the file format and the line terminations in the field right to the field with line/column/clipboard numbers in the status bar mean.
