Description Sergej Andrejev 2005-06-08 20:01:31 UTC
Hello I have a bug with internationalization. THat is when i change 
language in my preferences to ru(russian) i get ?????? instead of all 
menus. That is weird because all articles in russian are fine. 

PS. tried this on IE 6 and opera 7.5

This happens on which wiki? en?
en: is a latin-1 wiki, Russian characters do not render in latin-1.
Comment 2 Sergej Andrejev 2005-06-12 22:20:51 UTC
in wiki witch is instaled on http://www.wikipedia.org/. The problem is that then 
i change interface language from english to russian (in preferences) it shows ???
? instead of menu items. For example: 
Sandrejev@gmail.comMy talkPreferencesMy watchlistMy contributionsLog out

looks like this in russian

Sandrejev@gmail.com???? ?????????????????????? ?????? ????????????? ?????????? ??
???????

And I'm sure that it's not an encoding problem because I tried different 
encodings.(In reply to comment #1)

Yes, it's an encoding issue. en.wikipedia.org and a few others are currently encoded in 8-
bit Latin-1 and cannot include Russian characters in literal output. The Russian text, when 
selected, is downconverted from UTF-8 to Latin-1 which fails, producing "?"s on output.

This is fixed in MediaWiki 1.5, which will convert the remaining Latin-1 wikis to UTF-8.

Resolving as FIXED, fixed-in-cvs.
