Hello,
About a month ago, I was able to convert an English srt file to Arabic, and was able to save it.  When I open this file with Notepad I get the Arabic lettering/text.
Now I have several srt files from different languages.  The problem I have is that I can attach the .srt extension to the notepad file, but when I open it up, the desired text is not there.
For example this is one for Japanese;
1
00:00:01,000 --> 00:00:02,555
¿¿¿¿
2
00:00:03,000 --> 00:00:07,000
¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿
¿¿¿bubaloo¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿
3
00:00:12,000 --> 00:00:14,000
¿¿¿¿bubaloo¿
¿¿¿bubaloo¿¿¿¿¿¿¿!

How then can I save this file for it to keep its Japanese text?
