Why do you need to keep changing the system locale?

Change of system locale will also effect the keys on the keyboard, for example, changing to Japanese locale will have the forward slash changed to another sign that's local to Japan.

Code page can be changed to UTF-8 permanently! Many of us have done this without experiencing problems!

Interesting, thank you. I'll try it out.

@lansing

The keyboard map can be independently modified.

Thanks I just tried it and it worked. I googled it earlier and read that it may cause problem for some fonts. I will keep it active for now until problem arises.

Great to hear, lansing. Please keep us informed. Wasn't looking forward to convert DG apps to UTF-16.

This seems to be the way to go:

http://utf8everywhere.org/

Probably should set UTF-8 as default for the EXE and DLL via the manifest/resources.

EDIT: Added UTF-8 to both DGIndexNV and DGDecodeNV manifests. Will include in next slipstream. That should remove the need to force UTF-8 at the OS level with the "Beta: ..." option.
