Hex editors often don't let you append stuff to a file, so Notepad is more suitable for that.

But for now, I'll just keep gathering 8bit encoded SRT and telling MKV wich charset to use.
Again, wrong. You probably wanted to say that you want to tell mkvmerge which charset your file is using, so that it can convert it to UTF-8 correctly.

If all subtitle editors are that much behind the year 2004 (or actually 2000), you could also leave a few text fields blank, and only add those subtitles via Notepad which are not compatible to the character set your subtitle editor is using if you want to create a subtitle file using several languages

Second, Windows is not as retarded as some other operating systems. Converting 8bit sourses to UTF-8 needs exactly 2 calls of Windows API functions (MultiByteToWideChar and WideCharToMultiByte for ASCII -> UTF16 -> UTF8). I don't know how retarded e.g. Linux really is, but I do know that I don't care how it is done there...but it is possible. It must be, because MKV only allows UTF-8 encoding (which means, btw, that klingon in real klingon letters is impossible, as those are not yet included in UTF-8)
Hrm, as far as I can tell, my linux system seems to have better utf-8 support than any version of windows I've ever tried. (Window's native unicode is UTF-16, MS's notepad corrupts files with BOM's, many windows applications seem to have trouble with anything outside of MS's "codepages" which are a really outdated concept and totally incompatible with anything)

Do you know what a BOM is?
How do you know that notepad isnt putting them in there?
(Last time I checked on winxp there was no way to disable them in notepad either)

MUHAHAHAHAHAH With "corrupt" you meant "adds"? LOL

I thought you meant it damaged your files if they had a BOM before saving them. You probably mean that some retarded applications don't handle files with BOM, and that you don't blame those applications, but Notepad instead? HAHA.

Prepending a BOM ***is** corrupting the file. Try editing a perl script if you think otherwise.
Its quite natural to blame a broken editor rather than pretty much every text programming
language in existence, just to name one family of things.
