Thanks for searching userecho, it look like there is lot of people with this issue.
Actually this problem is probably very minor for English speaking country, but for us European that work with lot of different language, it's very important.
In a perfect world, everybody use UTF files and there is no issue with encoding

The problem is that keeping/remembering the encoding of a file is not possible, because except for UTF files with BOM, there is no way to know the encoding of a file.
The setting could be saved in the session and remembered this way, but when you close the file you lose this information and the next time you open it you have to set the encoding again.
Some editor guess the encoding and even if it's not perfect, it's a nice to have.
