IntelliJ supports UTF-8?

One of my colleague complained that the IntelliJ does not support UTF-8 correctly:
  1. System.out.println("Dealer Caterpillar ciężkiego używanego wyposażenia i używanych części"); when you run it, the special character corrupted.
  2. After you safe the java file, restart the Intellij, the special character corrupted.
Here is my trick: In Intellij Settings->General->Default encoding, choose UTF-8 and restart, the java file will be stored in UTF-8 encoding.

Gvim: encoding puzzles.

You can reload a file using a different encoding if vim wasn't able to detect the correct encoding:
:e ++enc=<encoding>
for example:
:e ++enc=utf-8

Choose a font type like Courier New.

You can achieve both of these by adding the following lines in your gvim startup configuration file .vimrc:

set enc=utf-8
set guifont=Courier_New:h11:cDEFAULT
