Steps to Reproduce:
Create and open a test_folder in VSCode.
Add an XML file encoded in UTF-16 LE.
Note: The XML file encoded in UTF-16 LE is found only if it is currently open in VSCode.
@garfieldbanks I assume the file contains a UTF-16 LE BOM?
Wow. That was fast.
I don't know. I just used VSCode to reopen an old file with a new encoding, and then I put in the text with the tag.
I can reproduce after saving a file within VS Code in UTF-16 LE. Also reproduces with VS Code 1.7.
Search does not work in UTF-16 LE encoded files (fixes #17408)
