Does anyone know how to request rtiddsgen to use UTF-8 instead of UTF-16 in the resulting XML header when generating schema?

I am a little confused. From what I could see rtiddsgen is generating UTF-8, not UTF-16.  Is that what you want?  Or did you mean to ask if it could be used to generate UTF-16?

From what I have read UTF-8 is the more widely used encoding. It does not limit the character set, it just uses a 1-byte unit so some characters take 1-byte, others 2 bytes, and others 3 or 4 bytes.  All the encodings are fully reversible and there are free tools out there to convert between the different encodings.

Could you give additional details as to what you are trying to do?
