Samir,
Unicode files usually have a BOM (Byte Order Mark) sign at their start.
If the first three bytes of the stream are byte0=FF byte1=BB and byte2=BF, then the file is UTF8.

Optionally, using CarbonLib 1.2.5 you have GetTextAndEncodingFromCFString (declared in in Appearance.h). Then use the types in CFString.h for UTF8 and UTF7 (NonLossyASCII).

Within TEC, you can use Sniffers (TECSniffTextEncoding) - let me know if you want a code sample (reuven.sherwin@xmpie.com).
