Hello, does changing the encoding to Unicode before saving a notepad file absolutely, 100% guarantee that no text content will be lost or corrupted; not even a single character?

I am wanting to copy and paste massive amounts of content into notepad and be sure that not a single character or text is lost, corrupted or deleted. Many thanks!
