It could be that what you're calling "encoding types" is not the same
as the "character encoding" issues Rick was discussing -- caveat
Incidentally, XML parsers are supposed to make DOS/Unix line-ending
issues transparent to their applications. Do your issues relate to
XML at all?
If you ever do find a summary of "the encoding types" all in one
place, I'd like to see it. Mostly, poking around here and there is
You might like the following pages; they're my favorites for Western
European encodings (given that you didn't specify the language(s) with
which you're working, and given the occasional tendency on the part of
some native English speakers toward ethnocentricity, I'm assuming that
non-Western-European encoding issues are not part of your problem):
A tutorial on character code issues
Unicode transformation formats
ISO 8859 Alphabet soup
Codepage & Co. (proprietary "code pages")
ISO 646 (Good ol' ASCII)
Three cheers and a forhesa for Roman Czyborra!
Hope it helps,
