Favourite Code page is used when UTF-8 detection 

Okay, I Ctrl-Clicked on CP1252, then opened an ANSI file, and I no longer got a
warning about invalid UTF-8. However, if I now create a new file it's not UTF-8,
it's CP-1252! This is what I'm hinting at in my previous posts, the two settings
seem to be overwriting each other, I don't know if that's intentional but I
cannot get PSPad to use UTF-8 only for newly created files and silently fall
back to CP-1252 if a file is not valid UTF-8. From your reply I can only deduce
that this is not in fact how it's supposed to be. This is PSPad 5.0.7 (727)
32-bit, by the way.
