Description Dwayne Bailey 2006-01-17 07:46:24 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
When spell checking using the Afrikaans Myspell spell checker any suggested spellings contain broken characters.  The errors looks as if it is displaying UTF-8 characters in ISO-8859-1.

On investigation the file:
/usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/share/dict/ooo/af_ZA.dic
is encoded using UTF-8.

This file should be in ISO-8859-1

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
openoffice.org-langpack-af_ZA-2.0.1.1-4.1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openoffice.org-langpack-af_ZA-2.0.1.1-4.1
2. Using OpenOffice.org type the following word: geirriteer
3. Select the word
4. Format->Character - change the text to Afrikaans
5. Word should be misspelled.  Now right click and view suggestions.
  

Actual Results:  The following suggestions appear in the list:
ge�riteer
...

Expected Results:  This word should be displayed:
ge�rriteer
