well this is either konqueror or openoffice.org and not icu, the rendering is
fine. The problem is with the encoding of the data on paste. e.g. use paste
special and text instead of html.
I only got this today, so I'd like to punt it to 5.2.0 not 5.1.0 to give some
time to upstream to consider my patch
acking for 5.2.0.
a) the paste is wrong for html from konqueror in writer and in draw, but should
be ok in calc
b) paste special and "as text" shuold be ok in all apps
c) paste of html from firefox should be ok in all apps
so it only affects from konqueror to writer and draw
building, will be openoffice_org-2.3.0-6.1.el5
No 5.2 errata target available yet to file errata, builds available as
This problem is alive and well on Fedora 8, UTF-8 encoded data on the clipboard
is interpreted as ISO-8859-1 on paste. Packages are:
kdebase-3.5.9-3.fc8 (for konqueror)
As said above, copying from konqueror and pasting to openoffice-writer using
"paste special" is a good workaround.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
