Description xmlizer 2004-08-10 16:53:59 UTC
when a link contains UTF-8 characters, like [[étrusque]] in a timeline, it links to instead of for example in the french wiki
Comment 1 Guttorm Flatabø 2004-08-23 21:05:36 UTC
This is known by the author. See supplied URL.
Comment 2 Christian Schlotter 2005-05-20 13:36:30 UTC
Although this bug is know by the author, I will list some things I stumbled across:


In the timeline, every link has to be fixed like this:
  from: 1607 till: 2005 color:PA text:"[[Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen|Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen]]"
-->ät_Gießen (correct, but should work without workaround)

It is strange that the following doesn't work:
  from: 1573 till: 2005 color:PA text:"[[Universität Ölmütz|Palacky-Universität Ölmütz]]"
-->ät_26%Ouml;lmütz (the Ö seems not to be recognized)

This wouldn't work, either:
  from: 1573 till: 2005 color:PA text:"[[Olomouc#Universität|Palacky-Universität Olmütz]]"  
-->ät (%23 should be #)
Comment 3 David Gerard 2005-11-15 11:07:44 UTC
See also Bug 3965 (EasyTimeline does not handle unicode characters above 7e
properly), which isn't quite a dupe of this. I think.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2005-11-19 06:23:50 UTC
Incorporated fix for this into bug 3965 patch. Fixed in CVS.
