Description Ariel T. Glenn 2008-01-14 02:03:38 UTC
this query 
 wget '|edit&format=wddx&rcstart=2008-01-14T02:00:00Z&rcend=2008-01-13T23:00:00Z'
produces good output for the article titles (e.g. ουλαμός)

this query
 wget '|user&rclimit=500&rctype=new|edit&format=wddx&rcstart=2008-01-14T02:00:00Z&rcend=2008-01-13T23:00:00Z'
produces bad output, like  οÏλαμÏÏ

the parameter rcprop=title is apparently to blame.
Comment 1 Bryan Tong Minh 2008-03-03 22:23:40 UTC
Internet Explorer does not appear to recognize the charset=utf-8 HTTP header or the <?xml encoding?> declaration. Worksforme in Firefox, and should work in any non-broken, UTF aware client.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-03-03 23:56:01 UTC
Works for me in IE as well (at least IE 7).
