Hi all,


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

magCode             R73

specificationStatus          Product


From flowscript:

descriptiveTitle=N-channel 25 V 2.85 mΩ 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.


nxp10009@NXL01262 /c/development/workspaces/cocoon22/trunk/core

$ find . -name *.properties | xargs grep "formencoding"



So what’s the best way to fix this?
