Created an attachment (id=20687)
 --> (http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=20687)
patch that implements opening/saving files as ACP, UTF8, UTF16-LE and UTF16-BE

This patch is far too messy to send in, as it does lots of random stuff. I
wrote most of it last year.

Some questions:

* Should I add a specific "Unix codepage" (CP_UNIXCP) item? (the UTF-8 option
adds a non-standard byte-order mark.) This could even do LF <-> CRLF
* Should I use IsTextUnicode()? If so, Wine notepad may then suffer from the
"Bush hid the facts" bug.
* It could even enumerate all installed codepages (EnumSystemCodepages(), I
believe), and allow the user to pick any of them. Good idea?

Note that Wine notepad uses the active code page (CP_ACP) for saving/loading,
which isn't latin1/ISO-8859/CP1252 in some locales (e.g Russian uses CP1251,
Japanese uses CP932).

PS: Wine notepad doesn't like NUL characters (they truncate the file). This is
hard to fix. I think WinXP Notepad uses a custom edit control. I don't know,
