I'm pretty new to WinCVS/CVSNT, and I'm experiencing some problems with unicode files. I have some C3 source code in Unicode cs files, saved with codepage 1200. The problem is that When CVS commits the changes the file it makes a few changes (like adding  at the beginning of the file, and replacing some special Eastern Europen characters). When I reopen the file in Visual Studio, these changes are automatically reverted, and Visual Studio saves the file the right way. But then CVS again adds those weirg characters when commiting.

Is there anything wrong with Visual Studio, or with CVS? Shoud I save the files from VS with a different codepage?
