Description Andrea Diodato 2003-07-08 07:51:46 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-10; Linux) 
Description of problem: 
I have LANG=C, SYSFONT=lat0-sun16 and KEYBOARD=it 
(I try latarcirheb-sun16 too, but is the same) 
The editor produce a space when I hit a "national" key like "�quot; etc.. 
(maybe all ascii>127?) 
And if I hit the backspace, the editor delete a wrong character on screen 
(misalignement between screen and the "editor-logic"?). 
When I load a file whit some of this characters, simply miss this chars (both 
screen and "editor-logic"). 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.LANG=C and SYSFONT="lat0-sun16" or "latarcirheb-sun16", KEYBOARD=it 
2.open the editor 
3.hit a "national" key on keyboard (maybe all ascii>127) 
4.Or load a file with some of this chars 
Actual Results:  Appear a space, but the editor don't work correctly. 
On a file, miss this chars. 
Expected Results:  Appear the character, like normal editors (the shell works) 
Additional info: Maybe the same with all national keyboards?

You should enable 8bit input for this to work. This is enabled in
current RawHide, which also holds some more UTF-8 fixes.

Closing RAWHIDE. Please reopen if you are still having issues.
