comment How can I set VIM's default encoding to UTF-8?
fileencodings=utf-8 will cause Vim to recognize the input file as UTF-8 but then perform a lossy conversion to Latin-1. Plus it will cause Vim to fail to recognize UTF-16. The better solution is to set encoding=utf-8 which turns Vim from a native one-byte editor into a native multibyte editor.
