UTF-8 yiic

Let me see if I can explain it right.

At least in Windows, yiic tool generate files with contents under UTF-8 converted to Cp52 codification.

If I open the files with notepad, Eclipse or another tool, characters are under CP52. It is read right by our web server, but we have to convert it if we want to modify the file.

Could yiic generate files directly under UTF-8 codification?

The code generated by yiic tool is in UTF-8. Your editor may, however, open it in the default system locale since in most cases the generated code only contains ASCII characters.
