Description Siebrand Mazeland 2006-11-30 13:15:57 UTC
Using the Serbian user interface, � is displayed at the end of some Serbian

: it happens to me in French, it's at the end of the part of the def that is
displayed (before we click on the "+" sign) when the letter where it's cut is a
special character (é, è, ...). (Is it any clear?) [[User:Kipcool|Kipcool]]

Still happens with UI language set to 'sr' on Added a screenshot and updated URL.
Comment 3 Mormegil 2008-11-12 21:56:48 UTC
This bug is still there; the problem is that the truncation of the displayed text uses plain old substr (see OmegaWiki/Editor.php), which cuts at bytes, not at UTF-8 characters. So if the boundary happens to be inside a UTF-8 character, the result is an invalid UTF-8 sequence, displayed as � in most browsers.

You need either to use mb_substr (or implement a similar function), or clean the resulting string (UTF-8 is self-synchronizing, so it’s not a problem).
