Andrew, are you still using the FastColoredTextBox class for your C# editor?
Yeah, that's still the plan. I forked it and added code page support to it so it will load/save files in DOS code pages. But now I'm wondering if I don't need to do that- maybe I leave the source files with Windows-1252 encoding, and then only convert to DOS code page when compiling. I'm still not sure which way is the best.

I'd say leave the source files as Win-1252 so external tools can work with it.

...Though nowadays Unicode would be preferred, while some 32 characters in the middle don't match between Unicode and Win-1252, because the first 256 characters in Unicode match ISO-8859-1 instead. Oops.

(I found it was easier to write external tools of my own to handle SCI 1.1+ UTF-8 support than to convert SCI Companion. Go fig.)
