I'm having a problem with encoding of properties.xml, and I'm not sure
if its an issue of CMFCore or Plone. Maybe it's not even an issue, but
here it goes:
If the properties.xml file doesn't include any charset declaration, in
CMFCore.exportimport.properties, _importNode relies on
default-zpublisher-encoding (defined at zope.conf) and not in the
context/site charset, like _exportNode does.
So, if we have default-zpublisher-encoding set to 'iso-8859-1' and the
site charset is 'utf-8', property values will be stored encoded as
One possible fix, would be to get the context encoding in _importNode,
just like _exportNode:
def _importNode(self, node):
"""Import the object from the DOM node.
+ self._encoding = self.context.getProperty('default_charset',
for child in node.childNodes:
But there is another problem: even then, it wouldn't work for Plone. The
'default_charset' property is only available at
context.getProperty('default_charset') will fail. But, I guess, this is
a Plone problem...
