HtmlEditor with Unicode

I've tried the HtmlEditor.dll. But I can't type a text using Unicode here. The letters usually disappear. So, how can I use the HtmlEditor.dll to add Unicode?

Try forcing the encoding using the property to Unicode.

Actually this property only changes the way text is read back from the control.

There's a bit of mystery here. The default IE context menu has an Encoding menu, and one suggestion would be to enable this menu and to select Unicode. However, I don't know how to set this Encoding option in code. If anyone does, I would like to know - it's on the menu, so there must be an API for it.

Another idea is to use the meta tag with the http-equiv="content-type" attribrute and set the charset attribute=UTF-16 or ISO-10646-1 or whatever. Set this in a "blank" document to initialise the HtmlEditor.
