Hi,

yesterday I tried to document a piece of code I had written in Ruby 1.9.
But it turned out that Rdoc wasn't able to document my UTF-8 encoded
file! Reduced to a minimal example, this file...

#Encoding: UTF-8
#test file

#test class
class A

  #test method
  def a
    puts "a"
  end

end

...can't be documented if encoded in UTF-8. When I tried it again with
an encoding of Windows-1252 (yes, I'm using Ruby on Windows...) it
worked fine. I tried both the versions 2.2.2 and 2.4.3 of Rdoc but
neither of it worked - regardless of whether I used an additional "-c
UTF-8" parameter or not.

I'm using ruby 1.9.1-p129 on Windows XP SP3. Because I was telled at the
German Ruby forum
(http://forum.ruby-portal.de/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=9792) that this worked
fine on OS X I suspect that this is a Windows issue. Is there some fix
about it or am I just doing something wrong?
