This is absolutely the *wrong* solution.
Native8BitEncoding is *specifically* *always* a non-
The correct solution is to get the offending bit of
code which is using the value in Native8BitEncoding to
use the correct value which is NativeEncoding. This
should be UTF-8 under a UTF-8 locale.
This is why there are several "Native" encodings.
Please ask for more help if this is unclear. Getting
encoding logic wrong by guessing rather than learning
will cause all kinds of nightmares.
