PHP - save unicoded text file

Hi,

I've written a PHP script which creates and save a txt file with content inside - that works well.
Out of the 4 options that Notepad allows (ANSI, Unicode, Unicode big endian and UTF-8) I've only managed to find how to create the file as ANSI and UTF-8 but I need the Unicode one or any idea how to convert it afterward.

Will appreciate a solution for that.

Thanks

Can you tell us WHY you need Unicode?  What characters are not available in the other character sets?

Also, you might benefit from reading this.  It is rather long and detailed, but it offers a good foundation.

I'm going to post an objection to closing this question.   Please work with us here.  Did you read Joel Spolsky's article?  Can you tell us WHY you need Unicode?  What characters are not available in the other character sets?

Thanks, ~Ray

Absent any response from the Asker, I think http:#34932832 and http:#34933164 cover the subject.  But I would hope to see the specific issues so we can see what characters are causing the problem.
