The problem described below is still present in Amaya 10. I reset my new 
doc preference to utf-8, but Amaya resets it to us-ascii if I open a 
file with errors in it.

Right now I'm working on updating quite a few old html files with errors 
in them, so this inability to retain my new doc preferences is quite 
annoying.  Has there been any progress?

If there is no way around this problem, please reorder the doc type 
options so that ANYTHING other than us-ascii appears as the default.

I'm on a Mac PPC with OSX 10.4.11

The following scenario seems to be related to the us-ascii problem with
the newdoctype Preferences.

(1) Open Amaya
(2) Set preferences>publishing>newdoctype to something other than
us-ascii and Apply
(3) Check by opening a new document or two.
(4) Now open the attached html file that has errors in it. (you may need
to have the style sheet as well, because the errors are actually in
that--see previous post) You should see the little red ball.
(5) Now check your preferences settings and/or try to create a new document.

When I do this, my publishing>newdoctype has been reset to us-ascii

Thanks for your help,
