I have taken this a little further after trying all suggestions in the thread
with no success and looked into zope.conf, specifically:
# Directive: default_zpublisher_encoding
# This controls what character set is used to encode unicode
# data that reaches ZPublisher without any other specified encoding.
# Default: iso-8859-15
# default_zpublisher_encoding utf-8
As my pages all report as iso-8859-15 I thought a change here would help, but
from OFS.content_types import guess_content_type
Error: 'default_zpublisher_encoding' is not a known key name
It works on this: Zope Version (Zope 2.9.0, python 2.4.2, win32)
And fails on this: Zope Version (Zope 2.9.0-, python 2.4.5, linux2)
Any further help would be appreciated.
ps. just noticed the typo (not mine) in zope.conf -
default_zpublisher_encoding should be default-zpublisher-encoding
Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org
