|Subject:||param() returns bytes rather than a perl utf-8 string|
- create a form, either in GET or POST mode, in a page whose charset is UTF-8, using the CGI::charset('utf-8') function, and "binmode STDOUT, ':utf8'". - use Internet Explorer (6.0), or Firefox, to answer the form - the browser sends form parameters encoded in the charset of the form, i.e. utf-8. In case of a form in GET mode, one can see utf-8 bytes encoded one by one, e.g. %C3%A9 for é. - the param() function returns the right string value, but it is not marked as utf-8. This is rather unexpected for me, because i have writen the form using perl utf-8 strings, not raw utf-8 bytes. I am not sure this would be considered as a bug by everybody, but it would be nice to have at least a note in the perldoc.
