    « TextEncoder

    This is an experimental technology
    Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for the proper prefixes to use in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the spec changes.

    The TextEncoder.encoding read-only property returns a DOMString containing the name of the encoding algorithm used by the specific encoder.

    It can only have the following value 'utf-8'.


    b = encoder.encoding;
