Subject Forrest does not respect encoding of HTML source files?
Date Thu, 23 Jun 2005 06:33:46 GMT

I tried to use a UTF-8 encoded HTML file as source file (for skinning  
etc.), but the UTF-8 got garbled (was treated as Latin1/stream of  
single bytes). I didn't at the time have the possibility to check for  
ways to configure this, but it appears to me that when a properly  
encoded and marked-up HTML file is read, Forrest should honour the  
encoding info in the file, and use that encoding when reading it.

The OpenOffice input plugin will treat UTF-8 correctly (I assume  
UTF-8 is the default encoding of OpenOffice), but alas, it returned  
the tables as paragraphs. Thus, with the source files I had, I was  
forced to choose between proper character rendering or proper table  

Anyone any experience or hints on this one?
