Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 111218
should turns on alt_entity automatically with the current locale
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:32 EDT
Description of problem:
© comes out as '?' when rendered with -O ascii.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. w3m -O ascii -T text/html -dump /mnt/macaroni/RELEASE-NOTES.html
2. Look at the copyright notice.
looks like a test case is not proper because it contains real code and
not using © symbol. so w3m just converts the strings to the
w3m already has a workaround to do this. use -o alt_entity=on. w3m is
going to use alternative ASCII characters for such symbols then.
It should be used automatically, so I would change the severity to the
enhancement because there is workaround.
No, that doesn't work. Tried with w3m-0.5.1-4.
Sorry, I meant for ©, but not U+00A9. probably it's hard to show U+00A9 in
*ASCII*, because ASCII doesn't understand it. though it can be shown with
US-ASCII in mozilla, it's screwed up a bit.
Fedora Core 1 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates
only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the
Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in
the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the
version to match.
NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.
