I'm using QGIS for some SHP processing. When I save the file, the DBF utf-8 text encoding is wrong:

Source DBF

à0è0ì0ò0ù0  HEX: C3A0 30 C3A8 30 C3AC 30 C3B2 30 C3B9 30 

Saved DBF

à0è0ì0ò0ù HEX: C383C2A030C383C2A830C383C2AC30C383C2B230C383C2B9

Make sure you know what is the source encoding of your data and choose it when creating a layer.QGIS by default exports vector data in system encoding which doesn't have to be necessarily utf-8.
