ISE Text Editor - Unicode and UTF-8 encoding are not supported

Description

If I create or save a file using Unicode and UTF-8 encoding in a third party Text Editor, it can be opened and viewed with the ISE Text Editor. However, if the file is modified and saved, the encoding is changed to ANSI.

Solution

This is intended behavior. UTF-8 and Unicode encoding is not supported by XST.

Note: Unicode characters can be processed if the characters are inside a commented block, see (Xilinx Answer 36813)
