The notepad++ defaults are nice.

If you still find yourself wondering on encoding, or needing to convert, I have a portable .NET app to display the encoding of files as well as convert them in batch. It was something I threw together quick for work due to an issue with Linux saving files incorrectly on the NAS. Of course, notepad++ handles them as well, though a bit differently than most software. This uses the open source mozilla encoding parser to give a confidence of the encoding based on the header and file content 0 being not confident to 1 being 100 percent confident (passes all tests and no other encoding characters detected).
