InspectionDescriptionDefault Severity
Lossy encoding

Reports characters that cannot be displayed because of the current document encoding.

Examples:

  • If you type international characters in a document with the US-ASCII charset, some characters will be lost on save.

  • If you load a UTF-8-encoded file using the ISO-8859-1 one-byte charset, some characters will be displayed incorrectly.



You can fix this by changing the file encoding either by specifying the encoding directly in the file, e.g. by editing encoding= attribute in the XML prolog of XML file, or by changing the corresponding options in Settings | Editor | File Encodings.
