I was curious to know what is the standard encoding of pd files in each  
operating system. According to Notepad+, in XP is ANSI.

Or a followup question, which format is better for pd to read a string of  
characters and convert it to floats? ANSI seems the be most reliable here  
where it comes to interpreting the data, although utf8 without BOM renders  
them in the symbol atom more accurately.

The reason I'm asking is because I'm working with converting ascii  
characters to their float value.

If anyone wants, I can send a small test patch to try out.
