The Encoding key is deprecated in the FreeDesktop standard. Instead, all strings must now be encoded in UTF-8. This desktop entry specifies an Encoding of UTF-8. It is harmless but can be dropped.

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