Hi,

 

I have several XML files with ISO-8859-1 encoding in a SharePoint Online library, when I open the file with the built in Text Editor I get a prompt saying:

 

Unknown encoding,
An unknown encoding was detected. The file will be converted to a different encoding if you save.


Saving the file will mess up the Swedish letters "åäö".

What encodings are allowed?

 

Thanks in advance, Draax

@Draax I am also facing the same encoding issue while editing file in sharepoint. Have you got any solution?
