Thread Name: Tech: Mac script to escape text
Subject: RE: Tech: Mac script to escape text
AC : OK - I understood most of that.
But I see the lack of need for a BOM as an advantage of UTF-8.
Also UTF-8:
(a) makes smaller files in most cases
(b) is compatible with ASCII

I suppose if I was commonly using non-Latin based alphabets I'd see it differently.

Does the Mac OS use UTF-16 as standard for all text files now?
