I have Eclipse installed on an old machine and a new machine. I download from svn repository on old Eclipse, UTF8 character in a java file displays fine. I download onto new Eclipse, UTF8 character displays as "?". I deduce that the file is saved correctly in SVN. I have checked some settings in Preferences>... between the two Eclipse installs and they appear the same. Which preferences should I investigate? Remember, I have at least one eclipse on one machine working as expected.
