It would be good if built-in text editor could correctly display utf-8 encoded text.

Yes it would be nice for every system in your app.
Especialy for eastern codings. It is not a hassle ?? Is it?

well... I also think utf support in the internal editor would be great.... i love the internal editor and use it for coding php directly on server... but without utf-8 it is not much useful these days for me, when most of webs are coded in utf

UTF8 Support would also be nice for file names in the directory

WinSCP does support UTF8 in filenames. Please read FAQ.

Atleast scandinavian letters do not work yet in the newest winscp. Using SFTP or SCP and copying directory named from window XP to linux (utf box).

for reference lets create directory in linux box
Code:
$ mkdir && ls --color=none -1|hexdump -C
00000000  c3 a4 0a                      |...|
00000003


then I create named directory in windows XP and use winscp (scp or sftp) to copy it to linux box and I get this
Code:
$ ls --color=none -1|hexdump -C
00000000  e4 0a                          |..|
00000002


^^ this is not what it should be. If I use filezilla with sftp transfer the directory is displayd as utf on the linux box.
Code:
$ ls --color=none -1|hexdump -C
00000000  c3 a4 0a                       |...|
00000003


Linux box locale
Code:
$ locale
LANG=fi_FI.utf8


Am I doing something wrong with winscp or is it just scandinavic bug?

Hey there, I also have problems with UTF-8 file names:

on my linux box i have as locale: LANG=de_AT.UTF-8
i connect with SFTP v3 and "Server does not use UTF-8" off

German umlauts () work flawlessly, but file names with Russian characters don't work at all, they're just replaced with '?' (existing files & files that are created with WinSCP).
Any idea?

and as we're in "Feature requests" here, UTF-8 support for SCP would be cool! Cool

WinSCP is not an Unicode application, hence it cannot work with multiple character sets at the same time. It can correctly convert only those character that are present it default character set of your windows station (what is German I guess).

Oh, I see. Any chance it might become one? I consider this a rather important feature.

Almost no chance Sad That would mean rewrite the application from scratch.
