ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------

When attempting to Export out an XER file using a non English character set (i.e. Chinese simplified) the character 项目 becomes ??.

P6 Professional XER Export converts the Export file to ANSI encoding.

Business case: Customer has a business case of being able to Import and Export multiple languages, without a specific Windows locale. (i.e. Chinese, Russian, French, etc.).

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

  1. Create a Project with a single Activity, and add a Chinese character (via google translator) i.e. 项目.
  2. Export out as XER.
  3. The character becomes ?? instead of 项目.
  4. When Exported out as XML the XML file displays 项目.
  5. As a result when Importing the XER into P6 (as new Project) it displays as ??.
