So? Isn't that what the <META HTTP-EQUIV="CONTENT-TYPE" CONTENT="text/html; charset=windows-1252"> tag in the saved file says then? Do we document that it would save in UTF-8? I fail to see how this is a bug. Sure, it would be more "cool" and modern to save as UTF-8, but unless I miss something this is just a low priority enhancement request.
To avoid confusion, let me add that the initial title of this bug report was "HTML files are saved in local encoding (e.g. cp1251) instead of utf8"

You can choose any encoding in Options - Load-Save - HTML Compatibility settings.
OK, so clearly NOTABUG then.

Then why not enable UTF8 in that HTML Compatibility menu by default?
Can it be a small enhancement request?

I've just did fresh install LO 126.96.36.199 with new user profile on PCLinuxos KDE. Unicode (UTF-8) has been applied as default character set (same as screenshot).

Should stop calling it a bug - it works as expected. It's an enhancement request which might never be implemented if no developer wants to volunteer to tackle it.
Moving to NEW as REOPENED is incorrect.
