You can force the open by setting the encoding to none, but as
Scintilla takes a null terminated string of text to display, what is
shown stops at the first zero byte in the file.
As Scintilla is a text editing widget, and because changing it would
break the interface to all the users of Scintilla, this behavior is
unlikely to change.
