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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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