switching text encoding for Tag Source parser

I'm modifying dano's vgmdb.net script so that I can import the Japanese song titles. The charset according to the html is UTF-8. The debug output file that's generated is in UTF-16 little-endian. I need to parse the html as UTF-8 but as far as I can tell there is no way of doing so. I tried using a lot of options for the [Encoding], but the help file seems to suggest it only applies for the interpretation of the URL.

Here's the code modified to hone in on the problem:

[Name]=VGMdb
[BasedOn]=VGMdb.net
[SearchBy]=http://vgmdb.net/album/5411
[Encoding]=utf-8

[ParserScriptAlbum]=...
# ###################################################################
#                    A  L  B  U  M
# ###################################################################
debug "on" "C:\zDebug\debug_VGMdb_B.html" "10"
debugwriteinput "C:\zDebug\VGMdb_B.html"


# Tracks
FindLine "id=\"tl9143\""
findline "class=\"smallfont\"><span class=\"label\">"
do

#    outputto "Tracks"
    OutputTo "TitleJP"
    moveline 1
    findinline "width=\"100%\">"
    sayuntil "</td>"
    say "|"
    
    outputto "_Length"
    moveline 1
    sayregexp "(?<=<span class=\"time\">)[\d:]+(?=</span>)" ""
    say "|"

    findline "class=\"smallfont\"><span class=\"label\">" 1 1    
while "<td "

Here's the output when reaching a Japanese title (note that the first title for this particular album is correctly given in English):

=========

Script-Line : 39
Command : sayuntil
Parameter 1 : ><

Output : >Overture|星くず祭<

Line and position:

星くず祭

==========

The output at this point instead should be Overture|星くず祭. Is there a way to set the text encoding for the parser?

The parser auto-detects the encoding. Sometimes it fails.
Maybe Florian can improve it.

I PM'd Florian the issue when I first read your reply, but he hasn't answered. I understand though seeing as how you all receive so many requests.
