Only of interest if you have to work with Japanese web pages maybe, as they tend to be in the sjis encoding. If you just click on the file Gedit shows garbage - you have to select the sjis encoding yourself every time, which slows things down a bit. However, for once Gnome has something to be said for it: Gedit is in the club, and you can change its behaviour with gconf. Run this command (you don't need sudo):
gconftool-2 -s /apps/gedit-2/preferences/encodings/auto_detected --type=list --list-type=string '[UTF-8,EUC-JP,ISO-2022-JP,SHIFT_JIS,CURRENT,ISO-8859-15]'
and sjis encoding will be automatically detected for you
(Now if there's a way to do that with Geany too...)
