I wrote a text in UTF8 on linux, and when I try to open it on windows (allways under OOo -of course-) it's broken.
I don't know if it's an OOo instalation/configuration issue or a windows/linux uncompatibility.
Does anybody help me please?
Thnx!!!

You are referring to a plain text file with utf8 encoding?

yes, it is a list separated by "," that I open with spreadsheet.
When I open with linux I see it ok, but with windows, it doesn't print all chars well.
I think it is an operating system issue, but it is supposed that both compilations of OOo uses the same unicode table (as all the soft do)
I don't know where to start

Thnx

You can't have a "plain text" file in UTF-8. Well, you can, but it won't work with anything unless you have a way to tell the application specifically how the text is encoded.

You can do this using File > Open; point to the correct file, then set the file type to "CSV" and OK. This will bring up a dialog--fill in the correct settings, including the encoding (UTF-8) and the separator character.

I have allready done it, so it's because i'm posting here... It seems that its an operating system issue, but if OOo can handle utf in both OS, it should be no diference...
I don't know what to do or wich info should help here to find the problem.

Thnx

If you want some help, provide enough information. At least:
a) are your trying to open your file in Writer or in Calc?
b) are you trying to open it via the OOo file open dialog? which filter do you use?
c) which is the file name extension?
d) do you use a correct font to display your text?

By the way, why don't you share your file? Just to let someone else check it.

It seems to be a general linux against windows issue, because pop mails fails too in enconding.
Sorry about posting an out of scope problem

Thanks a lot!
