TEXT PROCESSING Working with plain text The most basic text format is plain text (.txt suffix) .txt does not allow for additional text formatting, such as italics, bold, or color, etc. .txt is very versatile, and plain text files can be opened on virtually any PC.
TEXT PROCESSING Character encoding With the plain text we must be careful about correct coding. Text encoding assignees numbers to characters through the character sets. It can vary in different languages. For creating and editing a plain text Windows has a application called Notepad (Start Menu -> Programs -> Accessories -> Notepad).
TEXT PROCESSING Character encoding When saving file in plain text format, choose the encoding as UTF-8 (see picture) Saving plain text with encoding UTF-8 ensures that all special, country-specific characters will display correctly.
