I want to add, that this problem happens with xml-files, too...
If you're opening a xml-file witch is iso-8859-1 encoded and also has a correct xml-header where the encoding of the file is stated, kate is corrupting the file by simply saving it, 'cause kate saves them in utf-8.
But when you open the file and manually correct the encoding, then edit,
then save it, there is no problem. The next time you open that file,
kate handles the encoding correct and opens it in iso-8859-1 each time.
Seems to me that kate sets some kind of flag to the file?
