I use Unicode data in my Zope 3 applications extensively, and usually there are no problems. > The input data is saved correctly but not displayed correctly (é is > saved the following the utf-8 format and displayed as Ã©, which > corresponds the utf-8 encoding). It is customary to store Unicode data in Python's unicode strings rather than in UTF-8 encoded 8-bit strings. Can you check what your web browser thinks about the page's charset? If it selects ISO-8859-1, then your data is presented correctly, but the server did not specify the correct Content-Type header. If the browser thinks the page is in UTF-8, then the server mishandled the data. Zope 3 automatically converts Unicode to UTF-8 and adds 'charset=UTF-8' to the Content-Type header when a view returns a Unicode string. This is the recommended way of handling Unicode data in Zope 3, and this is what happens by default if your views render page templates. > I tried defining my templates' charset as utf-8, but that generates lots > of errors. Has anyone an idea on how to solve this problem. You have not told us enough to diagnose the problem. Can you reproduce it with a shortest possible test case?
