Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-668) UTF-8 encoded .ihtml documents gives garbled output
Date Thu, 06 Oct 2005 16:27:48 GMT

Sjur N. Moshagen commented on FOR-668:

The last sentence doesn't make much sense, it should read:

The bug appears when running Forrest on MacOS X 10.4 (and 10.3) with default java (1.4.2).
I have not tested it with other java versions.

The bug is not seen on (some) Linux configurations.

It appears that the HTML reader (as well as the jspwiki reader, see FOR-667) uses the Java
(default) locale, irrespective of any attempts to specify otherwise. And there is no way to
tell Forrest to read a (class of) file(s) using a certain encoding.

The HTML reader should obey the charset info in the header of the file.
