Subject: UTF-8 codes get reencoded
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 676b
When I save in background, the UTF-8 characters suffer a reencoding: they are rendered as single bytes, and then each byte is encoded in UTF-8 again. So for instance, I had: está where "á" needs 2 bytes. And when I save in background, I have: está where "Ã" needs 2 bytes and "¡" 2 bytes. It should maintain the encoding (UTF-8) and change nothing. A normal 'save' works ok. So probably the problem is in the AJAX interface. Maybe it wants unencoded content (also no %F3%C7... but just á), or it makes an extra conversion at the output. But in the code there's nothing about encoding or conversions... Perl 5.8.8 on Debian; testing Kwiki 0.38-1
