FileInfo.CreateText and encoding

Mental note to self:

Normally the StreamWriter class will use UTF-8 encoding, unless specified otherwise. You will have to use one of the special constructors to do so. Using FileInfo.CreateText will give you a StreamWriter, but it will have an ANSI encoding.

Remember this for the next time. Quick ways are sometimes expensive ways. Use the special constructors and a FileStream object.
