Question about supported character sets when importing a CSV file

On this document page - Importing XML data | FileMaker - it says when importing from XML that ISO-8859-1 is supported.

What about when importing an CSV file?

We tried that over the weekend, and FM14 Pro seemed to choke on umlauts and other characters in the file, and wouldn't import them. The data was ISO-8859-1 encoded.

While I could try to recreate the CSV files and convert all the ISO-8859-1 data to UTF-8, if FM could just support ISO-8851-1 directly it would certainly save time and effort.

Is that possible?

 

Thanks,
