Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8702
netscape doesn't show pages with codepages iso-8859-4/windows-1257
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:12:11 EDT
when you open a page which has codepage set to iso-8859-4 or windows-1257
you see huge amount of ? signs instead of the real contents.
Quickfix is to make netscape not to know anything about such codepages:
sed s/iso-8859-4/isa-8859-4/g < netscape-communicator > tmpnetscape
sed s/windows-1257/windoze-1257/g <tmpnetscape > netscape-communicator
no functionality is lost after this fix.
Actually it's a bug of all unix netscapes since ver 4.5 and needs fixing by
netscape-people but they dont want to take any steps to fix it several
after several bugreports. Hope you want see more happy netscape users in
Eastern Europe where iso-8859-4 & windows-1257 are standard codepages.
Got an example page? The one page we had as an example before
seems to work now.
Confirmed, and it has been reported to netscape. Unfortunately, we
can't really sed the binary as a matter of course for the distribution.
We'll try and add a readme to the next release.
