I have a text file with words like "intimate°" intimateý & tête-à-tête There's probably others
Is there a way to work out its encoding? I'm guessing extended ASCII
I've been using code bellow or similar StreamReader / StreamWriter like I said this a pure guess
string AllLines = File.ReadAllLines(FileName,Encoding.GetEncoding("iso-8859-1"));
It looks OK on a sample file
Is there a Difference between StreamReader & File.Read..??
I'm assuming once you read a file into a string with a particular encoding the string inherits that encoding & this maintained if used in a class.
