Avoid Bad EOL Translations When FTP'ing Your Files To *nix-based Servers,
Prevent Lost Of Lovely High-Unicode Letters/Emoji, Which Will Be Converted To infamous ? Characters.

- files that you have already saved, will pass through unmodified by encoding, due to the encoding-discovery engine of Notepad2, but all files saved WILL be EOL-modify to Unix-EOL.
