I have a problem with native2ascii

I take always a wrong escaped character. The box instead of the one that is written at the original file.

Why?

Are you viewing the file in Notepad? (That sounds like a stupid editor that can't deal with line feeds cross-platform)

the original characters are being saved fromt he notepad
1) As an Ansi file (Greek characters)
2) As Unicode
3) As UTF-8

All of the Greek characters

But the result is the same.

I think that if we encode in the right form the Greek characters it will save me a lot of refectorng.

Now I am thinking of using        

BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(
            new InputStreamReader(new FileInputStream("lan_el.properties"), "UTF8"));
String str = in.readLine();

But this will be costly in terms of programming. I will have to change a lot of things

The file must be at UTF8 in order for the native2ascii to work right
