Subject Re: DO NOT REPLY [Bug 11935] - format properties for Text/XMLSerializer not working
Date Mon, 11 Nov 2002 13:45:36 GMT
Is there a workaround for this bug? How do the users of C2.1 deal with 
the situation?

If I revert the fix in AbstractTextSerializer, the handling of 
namespaces is broken.

If I leave the fix as is, pages are served in UTF-8 and that stupid 
excuse for a browser that is IE barfs on UTF-8 characters. I would 
gladly tell my users to use Mozilla instead, but it seems like IE 
currently has more than 90% of the market. It's unbelievable that people 
would choose one browser over another just because it comes built-in 
with their OS, even if it's technically inferior. I think the 
manufacturer should be sued for monopolistic practices <*GRIN*>.

Would it be possible to change some code somewhere so that Cocoon would 
always serialize as, say, ISO-8859-1 instead of UTF-8? It's a ugly hack 
but at least it would make my Italian pages work in IE (at least I hope so).
