[MonoDevelop] UTF-16 support?

I'm new to MonoDevelop, but not new to .NET development. I have a C# project with UTF-16 characters, that appear not to be interpreted within MonoDevelop.
One of the .cs files in my Project is of UTF-16 encoding, and that MonoDevelop does not display the characters in the code window, nor will it print out the contents of those character strings. I dropped that file from that included project and re-added it, but was not given the option to add my file with encoding.
The only place where I saw I could add a file with encoding was in the Open dialog; but that that didn't appear to work either.
I can take my Windows C# file, cut and paste the characters into BBEdit and save on my Mac with encoding set as: UTF-16. I then locate the file in the Finder and the characters are as I expect. With the Mono Development environment open, I navigate to my file, select Encoding to "UTF-16" and select Open.
I don't see my characters. I see an empty box where the character should be.
What are the tips and tricks for getting UTF-16 characters to display and print as part of an included project in MonoDevelop? I'm just not seeing it.
I am on version 188.8.131.52.
