See my previous comment: one issue at a time. This issue was about
code that IDLE 3.0a5 cannot parse, but IDLE 3.0 can. If you have
a further issue with the proposed solution, please report it separately.

I don't think IDLE was designed to support editing any other files.
I would be opposed to adding user interface relevant only for editing
non-Python text files. If IDLE would assume a different encoding at save
time than was assumed at load time, this might be still considered
a bug; you would need to provide detailed instructions to reproduce
such a bug.
