Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 246184
problems displaying non-ascii characters
Last modified: 2008-04-11 02:37:05 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mugshot seems to have problems displaying non-ASCII (unicode) characters
(glyphs) like open and close double quotes and accented vowels, etc.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. find a blog posting including non-ascii characters
1. shown by mugshot as a diamond with a question mark inside
1. unicode characters to be displayed correctly.
Perhaps the encoding is getting broken somehow along the way?
Can you give the specific blog you are seeing the problem with? I haven't
seen any problems in this area recently.
(In general, bugzilla.mugshot.org is a better place to file bugs with
mugshot that aren't packaging related.)

Here is a screenshot.
This is with mugshot-1.1.42-3.fc7.
Also see it with mugshot-1.1.46-1.fc8.
Ok, I will file a bug upstream too.
Perhaps we should add mugshot bz to list of external bugzillas?
