A question was recently posted on Programmers.SE about Why IDEs don't support Unicode characters in code?. The author wrongly asserts that "no IDE supports" unicode, and the question is written in a way that it has chances to be downvoted (and has already one downvote) and closed.
On the other hand, the question can be reformulated into a form which will be actually useful to the community; something like:
What are the things to check when my IDE fails to support unicode in code?
I use [name of the IDE], but am unable to use unicode characters like
æ, represented by U+00E6 in unicode table.
Is this behavior the same in other IDEs? What can I do to make it work in [name of the IDE]?
In fact, we don't care about about the wrong assertions of the author, neither by the fact that the IDE she/he uses does not support it, but the situation where the text editor must support unicode, but doesn't can exist and affect other developers (see my answer about fonts or underlying file encoding).
So is it a good idea to just rewrite from scratch the question, or it's somehow abusive to change the question so heavily, and I must let it as is, awaiting for it to be closed?
