enter image description hereI have searched web 8 documentation couldnt get required required information. Appreciate your inputs!

Update: Details about encoding is mentioned in the following doc, Will get the Target language details updated in the web 8 doc sooner.

It was fully moved to CD side. From CM side we always use REL as Target Language and UTF-8 as Default Code Page.

Target Language can be configured in cd_deployer_config.xml in your Deployer role:

    <!-- Uncomment any of the following lines to set the target language as a specific language -->
    <Property Name="tcdl.target.language" Value="jsp" />
    <Property Name="tcdl.target.language" Value="dotnet" />
    <Property Name="tcdl.target.language" Value="rel"/>

Default Code page is configured in cd_storage_config.xml of your Discovery service under DeployerCapability role node:

<Role Name="DeployerCapability" Url="http://localhost:8084/httpupload">
     <Property Name="undo.enabled" Value="false"/>
     <Property Name="encoding" Value="UTF-8"/>
