Chris,

No.  The "String" format is for reading and writing raw Mathematica 
strings to/from a file 
(http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/format/String.html)

If you need to read/write something with a CharacterEncoding, you should 
use the "Text" format.
(http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/format/Text.html)

Thanks,

Igor
