Many Microsoft's editors saves non-ascii text files in utf-16 encoding by default (for example, Visual Studio and Notepad)
But Blame can't show text in two-bytes encodings.
- Create file in utf-16 codepage (example in attachment)
- add and commit it to git
- TorioiseGit -> Blame
In files with UTF-16 LE WITH BOM encoding only first line shown correctly, all characters in other lines loor like boxes. TortoiseMerge (Diff) display files in this codepages correctly.
