Do I need to use native2ascii on all my files before I jar them up for submission? Or does jar take care of this. choices.txt must be in ascii character encoding, but the default for windows is Cp1252.
Should I also run it on my source .java files? I'm not sure what jar takes care of if anything and I don't have a unix box to test it on.
If you are at all concerned, then by all means run native2ascii. However most editors save files as plain text files - if you can open one of your java source files and your readme file in notepad then you should be Ok.
Okay, well if it's not something that people do then I won't worry about it. I don't want to screw up my files by running native2ascii either, I'm not sure what would happen if you ran it twice on the same file for instance.
