If you open a topic written in Danish (which is like English + 3 extra letters in the alphabeth ƒƒ†ƒƒ˜ƒƒ…) in TMCE then the Danish characters are shown as strange two byte characters. And when I save this garbage is saved also so the topic is destroyed.

If I edit raw it is OK.

I have not setup TWiki for UTF8. And I do not want to. Too much trouble and not at all needed. Danish, French, German etc is displayed fine in the normal default locale.

And our TWiki is mainly English but with some Danish topics.

If you write some new Danish text it is displayed OK when you type is but it turns into garbage when you save it.

This is a release blocker.

To demonstrate

Dette er en dansk text med ƒ¦bler og nogle fƒ¥ sƒ¸de pƒ¦rer. Man kan spise dem eller ƒ¦de dem og man kan stƒ¥ pƒ¥ hƒ¦nder mens man gƒ¸r det.

You have to type the text. Then save it. Then edit again. Then save. And then you have the problem.

yes, i know. it's symptomatic of Item4622. When i have solved that, I will have solved this, so marking as duplicate.


Confirmed fixed as of SVN 14882
