In Mathematica v8 i am using this way to read the contents of a unicode file saved in utf-8 formattxt = Import["file.txt",CharacterEncoding -> "UTF-8"]w = ReadList[StringToStream[txt], Record, RecordLists -> True]the output, like this:{{unicode chars},{unicode chars},{unicode chars}}the letters displayed correctly even if i don't use CharacterEncoding -> "UTF-8"but usingReadList["file.txt", Record]will return the file as a  garbage characters , and setting $SystemCharacterEncoding = "UTF-8"$CharacterEncoding = $SystemCharacterEncodingdoes not cure the problem since ReadList can't accept CharacterEncoding -> "UTF-8" in its syntax unlike Import.are there some solutions to this phenomena.thankseros
