Description Pekka Savola 2000-06-30 01:56:57 EDT
Bugzilla seems to change the 8-bit special characters to 7-bit.  E.g. 'a'
with two dots --> d. 

See bug #12250 for an example.

Why not make bugzilla UTF-8 compliant ?
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-10-08 03:53:40 EDT
Bugzilla is not 8bit clean.  The problem is really, how does bugzilla know
what encoding you're using to submit a report with?  And how does it know
what encoding it should use to display the report to another user?

Both are probably solveable, but I don't think it would be an easy task
per se.  (or someone would have likely done it by now.)  ;o)

If bugzilla did use UTF-8, then how would someone using ISO8859-x to
file a bug report end up with their bug being treated?  Garbled as
UTF-8?  Not sure, but this sort of thing is more of a major bugzilla
feature request that is probably best to as a request to bugzilla.org
