[platform-dev] Specify specific encoding for opening documents

The specification for a language I’m supporting in a platform application states that source files for this language have UTF-8 encoding. However, the files do not have a byte order mark and on Windows machines the files are opening in NetBeans with Windows 1252 encoding. How can I specify (perhaps in my implementation of NbEditorKit?) that the files should be opened with UTF-8 encoding by default?


Thank you,
