I just don't get how it works when Cumulus isn't processing the file? As soon as I start it again, the weird chars appear.

Another route I tried; I don't have UTF-8 checked in CMX, stopped the processing. Opened up the text files and saved them as ANSI and the degrees symbol works. I started the processing again, and the file was converted back to UTF8 even though I don't have it enabled. The ipcamT.txt stays as ANSI while the outputted file is UTF8. I cannot keep them both in ANSI.

Then why is there options for UTF8 to be turned on or off in Extra web files? :D

Because I didn’t know that’s how the third party component worked when I wrote the code.

I've been using Cumulus V1 to create a text file for use by IPTimeLapse for over a year now and it works great. In my "template" file, I create the decimal symbol with ALT-0176 and save the file as ANSI. I let Cumulus V1 process the file and uncheck the UTF-8 box for this file on the FILES tab of the Internet Settings page. The end result is that the decimal symbol is still correct after processing and the file remains in ANSI format which is what I want. It does not get converted to UTF-8.
