i do some translation work, and when i download the file - and do not change anything, it saves normally, formatted and all.
But when i translate some strings, all formatting get's lost when i save the file.
I have been forced to use another program -instead of the normal Windows notepad -  to have a workaround - but right now, i'd like to know WHY it happens, and if there is a cure, since it keeps coming back (i believe i even had the problem on my 32- bit OS)

i noticed that only on the file for that program - others do NOT have the problem
the file is in UTF-8 format
