Just wanted to have a short discussion on an issue that I wasted quite some hours on. Let me first explain that I configured my cocoon block with following two properties as per http://cocoon.apache.org/2.2/1366_1_1.html :
Recently I created a form showing pre-populated data from an xquery. One form field contained the Ohm Ω character and the browser rendered if fine. But I had to post the data back to the server and the Ohm sign got corrupted.
From firebug I could see following:
descriptiveTitle N-channel 25 V 2.85 mΩ logic level MOSFET in LFPAK using NextPower technology
descriptiveTitle=N-channel 25 V 2.85 mâ¦ logic level MOSFET in LFPAK using NextPower technology
So next I started looking at cocoon sources using URLDecoder and I had a suspicion that NetUtils might be responsible for the issue. But that didn’t seem to be the issue. I managed to find out that the value I defined for formencoding is not actually used. The reason is that it also is set in cocoon-core and either it doesn’t get overwritten or the property from cocoon-core is overwriting my own property value.
$ find . -name *.properties | xargs grep "formencoding"
So what’s the best way to fix this?
