Visibility: info

The Encoding key is now deprecated by the FreeDesktop standard and all strings are required to be encoded in UTF-8. This desktop entry explicitly specifies an Encoding of UTF-8, which is harmless but no longer necessary.

The desktop-file-validate tool in the desktop-file-utils package is useful for checking the syntax of desktop entries.
