Hi!

Some time ago I filed this issue as a 2.6a1 bug
(http://collector.zope.org/Zope/517), only that it was German characters
with me ...

The browsers I was using where IE 6.0 (which led to errors storing property
sheets and could not display some of the propertysheets correctly) and
Mozilla, which just displayed the wrong characters.

I am quite sure that the problem is not with the Zope setup, but a real bug
in the way the forms are generated and evaluated. My Zope setup uses the
German locale settings. But I don't think that should be a problem ...

Cheers

Joachim

Thats bad. I will definetely resolve this asap.

what do you mean by "inserted into the form"? That the response contains a
single byte where you properties contain character whose unicode value is
greater than 127 ? how have you checked this? if so, thats a bug.

This is a directive to tell zope when you submit the form that your browser
will have encoded the form response using utf-8. Browsers stupidly dont put
this information anywhere more suitable.

What browser are you using? is it correctly using utf8 for this page?  (for
example, Mozilla has a View/Encoding menu that can override server-supplied
encoding information)

Those are supposed to be there.  The first inserts the
text/html;charset=utf-8
header into the management page. The second ensures that the dtml which
computes this page content returns a unicode object.

If the dtml returns a unicode object, then ZPublisher looks at the charset
header to determine how to encode it.

could be.

please put ib/python/OFS/dtml/properties.dtml back the way is was
originally,
then send me

1. which browser you are using
2. a export file containing one object that demonstrates the problem.
3. a copy of the page obtained using wget or similar.  (please dont use your
browsers 'save' feature because that sometimes performs transcoding)
