Hi All,

[sorry if this ends up being a double-post]
I’ve been having lots of fun with making a bilingual site in Radiant. Here are some current problems that I hope someone can suggest fixes for:

# Pages in Shift-JIS charset

Most Japanese cellphones require Shift-JIS for mobile sites, but the content-type field in Layout ignores charsets. Can anyone suggest how I’d add support for charsets to this, or another way to work around it?

# Mailer extension and sending ISO-2022-JP emails

Despite ActiveMailer docs[1] containing this:
“default_charset - The default charset used for the body and to encode the subject. Defaults to UTF-8. You can also pick a different charset from inside a method with charset.”

Setting this in environment.rb:

   config.action_mailer.default_charset = "iso-2022-jp"

still results in my email header and body being UTF-8 encoded, with body settings of:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: Quoted-printable

If I add this to environment.rb:

config.action_mailer.default_content_type = "text/ plain;charset=iso-2022-jp"

I get the bizarre combo of utf-8 encoded subject and body settings of:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: Iso-2022-jp

which is even worse. A Japanese article[2] suggests wrapping ActionMailer in TMail then iso-2022-jp and base64 the email, but I guess that requires a hack or an extension, right? here’s their code:

module ActionMailer #:nodoc:
  class Base
    require 'nkf'
    class << self
      def base64(text, charset="iso-2022-jp", convert=true)
        if convert
          if charset == "iso-2022-jp"
            text = NKF.nkf('-j -m0', text)
        text = [text].pack('m').delete("\r\n")

class Notifications < ActionMailer::Base
  @@default_charset = "iso-2022-jp"
  @@encode_subject = false
Then in test:

class NotificationsTest < Test::Unit::TestCase
  CHARSET = "iso-2022-jp"
    def encode(subject)
      ActionMailer::Base.base64(subject, CHARSET)

Anyone ever managed to get emails in non-UTF8 working

Finally, what’s up with i18n and how can I help? I can’t even get the Jargon branch (with the partially baked gibberish support) to run anymore…

peace - oli
