Saving with diffrent encoding?

Hi all
I want to save my c# files with unicode encoding.
I have some choices in encoding like:
1-Unicode-CodePage1200
2-Unicode(UTF8 with singnaure)-CodePage 65001
3-Unicode(UTF8 without singnaure)-CodePage 65001

which encoding is better to use unicode?/?
thanks in advance

2) is good because it means that anything which understands byte-order
marks will know it's UTF-8. It also means that all ASCII characters in
your file still only take up one byte each.

When you say "my c# files", you mean the source files?

In general the answer is "it depends"
Here are some considerations: http://www.unicode.org/notes/tn12/

How do I load and save a UTF-8 document in XML in ASP/VBS? Well, the loading* is not the problem actually -- the file is in UTF-8, and understood correctly -- but once saved, the UTF-8 is replaced by what seems to be iso-8859-1 (which Flash doesn't understand, but that's another problem). Any help greatly appreciated. * Something like this...
