Q: What encodings are supported?
A: Visual Studio Code will read and write files using UTF-8 encoding. UTF-16 is supported if its byte order mark (BOM) is present (meaning the opening character sequence is 0xEF,0xFF for big-endian, or 0xFF,0xEF for little-endian). Any existing BOM is preserved but will not be added unless it was there already. Other than UTF-8 and UTF-16, no other encoding is currently supported.
