This is an encoding / decoding tool that lets you simulate character encoding problems
Here, you can simulate what happens if you encode a text file with one encoding
and then decode the text with a different encoding. Try e.g. to encode the Swedish
characters åäö with utf-8 and then decode them with iso-8859-1, or try to encode
明伯 (simplified Chinese meaning 'to understand') with utf-8 and decode with
GB 18030. That will yield the characters: 鏄庝集, which I really can't understand.
Enter a string to encode / decode
The encoded / decoded string:
Code page is another name for character encoding. It consists of a table of values
that describes the character set for a particular language.
