Item4946 introduced this problem

In a UTF8 TWiki Writing non-English goes well but when you have such text inside verbatim tags and you save with Wysiwyg the text seems to be converted to garbage.

Each time you edit save each character in the garbage becomes more garbage. After a few edit save cycles the amount of garbage in a Danish text is so a severe that IE chokes on it.

I have not yet tried if the same problem exists in iso 8859

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 13 Apr 2008

So this is against the TinyMCEPlugin, and not against the Engine? I assume so. I am using utf8 on my site now, so I should be able to test.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 29 Apr 2008

Yes. Probably either the TMCE plugin or the WysiwygPlugin. I can never tell which of the two causes the problem.

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 30 Apr 2008

Me neither. Please just assign WYSIWYG problems to TinyMCEPlugin, and I'll move them to WysiwygPlugin after they are analysed, but please don't leave them as "Engine" or they'll get missed, like this one was for a long time.

Reassigned to TinyMCEPlugin. I haven't had a chance to set up test conditions to reproduce this yet.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 01 May 2008

I've tested this now, and can confirm there's a problem. I'm not sure what can be done about it, though (it's complicated frown )

-- CrawfordCurrie - 07 May 2008

Hoping for some help from TWiki:Main.MayerEugen in resolving this. We need to nail down the detail of all the charset conversions, implicit and explicit.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 16 May 2008

Please see http://develop.twiki.org/~twiki4/cgi-bin/view/LitterTray/TestEncodings and run the test script. If it works, then I can fix this bug.

-- TWiki:Main.CrawfordCurrie - 23 May 2008

Tried to run the script here at work on a 4.1.2 and IE6. All I get is error in page and no function when clicking the test buttons.

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 23 May 2008

What error? If it's not a charset-related error, it's likely to be your setup, as ktwilight was able to run the script without problems.

-- TWiki:Main.CrawfordCurrie - 24 May 2008

Never mind, I ran the necessary tests myself, and fixed the editor.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 25 May 2008

Whoops, forgot to decode the results of an entity decoding to the site charset, and broke the unit tests.
