Chinese characters in BBEdit?

I use the BBTidy plug-in (1.0b10-01 Dec 02,  W3C 
1998-2002, Terry Teague 1998-2004) in BBEdit 
8.2.2, and it has a bug that renders the tidied 
file in Chinese characters. As a workaround, I 
save the document in UTF-16 coding. At this point 
I can reopen the document and it reads normally 
in BBEdit, but the Chinese characters show up in 
a browser. I then zap non-ASCII characters and 
resave the file in Latin 1 coding. It finally 
reads normally both in BBEdit and in a browser.

Does anyone know how to avoid this tedious routine?
