Description Daniel Resare 2003-01-20 22:17:55 UTC
Description of problem:

When I set the system language to swedish (sv_SE.UTF-8) some translated messages
on the login screen have broken non-ascii characters. More specifically the
UTF-8 string from the translations file is treated as an ISO-8859-1 string and
what should have been an &aring; is now displayed as two bogus characters.

This does not apply to all texts in the gdm screen. The translation to 'Please
enter your username' gets translated correctly. 'Welcome to $HOST' and
'Language' are broken.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdm- (phoebe 8.0.93)

How reproducible:
seems to be always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set system language to Swedish
2. Log out

Actual results:
borken &auml; &ouml; and &aring; in some texts on the gdm login screen

Expected results:
properly recognized non-ascii

Please make #8168 a duplicate of this bug instead, or move that bug from Red Hat
Linux beta to Red Hat Public Beta.

I get this message from bugzilla:

"You are not permitted to edit bugs in product Red Hat Linux Beta."

when I try to edit that one.

fyi redhat-artwork 0.60 doesn't solve the problem for me

Comment 4 Red Hat Bugzilla 2006-02-21 18:51:16 UTC
