ISO 8859-1 would be just a "part-solution". With this code page we do not have the EURO symbol € (0xA4).
(...which will hopefully last for some time
To have that symbol I changed the encoding to ISO 8859-15. In the combo box in Eclipse that value was not available as a default, but adding was possible. To ensure, that it is not just an "silly" adding, I also tried to add ISO 8859-23 which is - of course - rubbish. Eclipse complaint, so I guess that ISO 8859-15 will be taken.
I recorded a new test case and tried to enter the EURO symbol. In the generated code, I get a "box". When looking via a hex editor the code at the position of the EURO symbol is 0x80. This is the EURO symbol, but only when using CP1252 which is used in Windows...
So, what does WT when it records user entries? Are only Eclipse-settings taken or is there anywhere at WT a switch I can use to make it like I want?
