Sublime Text doesn’t support Bangla or Unicode! (Fix/Work around)

So I was excited about this text editor that every one loves. Sublime Text. I downloaded Sublime Text 2 (For some reason I was reading it wrong, I thought it was Subline and only now I found out it was Sublime :/ ). So I started coding some basic stuff. And immediately notice that it doesn’t support Bangla. I basically used google translator to translate my Bangla (Me Lazy! :p , I don’t keep avro and all those stuff installed .. I either translate or type online from various online Bangla typing sites). I found out it was all broken. When I saved and saw it on browser. It was even worse.

Then next I thought You can’t write Bangla on HTML (since this was probably the first time I tried it in code), So I opened in Notepad and saved it. It was alright.

Then I tried again in sublime text, It started working in it for some reason.. No Idea way :/ .. I mean the on the editor it’s broken but everything is okay on the browser.

can't write bangla in subline text 2 browser output problem fixed

Weird kind of fix , I know.. I think it will work with all other Unicode Characters.


Summary of the fix

  1. Create your html file in sublime text
  2. If you want to use unicode characters (here Bangla Specifically in this tutorial) save the file in note pad once
  3. Get back to sublime text and from now on everything should work normally

Host Gator Customer Support Service; Not playing nice

I believed they had the best of the services, quicker response rate and reliability. But I’m frustrated with my recent experience with them. Their live chat typically takes about 30 + minutes to reach; That’s one long lasting problem, but recently an open ticket been kept for 5 days without single response. It was urgent, I needed my client’s hacked site to get up back as soon as possible. But I got no response from ticket yet. Today I contacted the live chat again and this time the agent gave me this link , Okay I have to pay $15 to get the site restored from their backup but they should have told me about this before. An important business site is still down for several days without attention. I don’t know how can I rely on them in future.

Update 1 (10th December 2014):

So This paid service was a lot quicker (not paid yet). Got response from them very quick. Now I have another problem. They don’t have my back up file!!!!! . Their weekly backup overwritten the files with current corrupted files. Fantastic! They only keep 1 back up copy.. Man this is soo good!.. Specially when I asked them about 6 days ago to resolve the problem. This has to change.. I have been loyal customer to them for long time now. I’m not switching yet.. Because it’s too much work for me to switch and not sure where can I find the best alternative.
