You just have to associate the non-standard extension with the Oxygen 
XML Editor in Window -> Preferences -> General -> Editors -> File 
Associations and with the oXygen XML content type in Window -> 
Preferences -> General -> Content Types -> Text -> XML -> oXygen XML as 
described in the User Manual for the Eclipse plugin:


If you associate the extension with oXygen Eclipse as described above 
and the file does not have an encoding declaration in the document 
prolog then oXygen applies the UTF-8 encoding by default. There was a 
problem with the default encoding when it was not declared in the 
document prolog but version 8.1 which will be released probably next 
week will fix that, it will use UTF-8 by default.
