Description Jörn Wagner 2006-11-04 15:45:50 UTC
Standard 1.8.2 installation on SuSE Linux 10.1

Saving a page with umlauts on it (äöü) will save the page alright but return a blank page.
This has been reproduced on Opera 9.02 and Firefox 1.0.7. Opera reports a 0 Byte file 
while Firefox renders the source as "<html><body></body></html>".
Preview works just fine.

Is it a configuration mistake or a bug?

Check web server's error log and PHP error log. Set up a PHP error log if you don't have one; see for documentation on php.ini options and error logging.
