CGI::Wiki (recent versions therof) isn't
fully supportive of all
charsets, but I don't care, because the only charset worth caring
is utf-8, and it does that.
I assume you are taking about mixing charsets in the same database? We
*do* need to support different charsets in different databases - it is
not okay to mandate utf8 everywhere at the moment, IMO.
It's ocurred to me that you might mean 'we have to allow latin-1 as
well' here, which I agree with. but I think offering a choice of
latin-1 or utf-8 is reasonable. Having said that, I think the code will
support any charset you ask of it..
If the latter, we would presumably need to patch
CGI::Wiki (I was
expecting a handful of fixes needed there anyway, to tell the database
what charset to use and so on).
0.62 looks like it's got most of my UTF-8 work - page names in Recent
Changes are still handled badly, that's the only major bug I know of in
Patches against the current release ok?
That would be fantastic!
Right then. I'm working on this in my svn repository because I hate
CVS. So far I have utf8 page contents and names, usernames, other
preferences, and metadata, I think.
svn repository - http://dev.jerakeen.org/svn/tomi/Projects/OpenGuides
working copy - http://dev.jerakeen.org/og_utf8/wiki.cgi?Home
that's just the colo)
patch - http://dev.jerakeen.org/files/2004/12/13/utf8.diff
Without my SVN CGI::Wiki, you'll have broken page names in the recent
changes view. This is only for people trying this themselves - the copy
linked above is fine.
the diff view is broken:
id=Home&version=1&diffversion=2 - but then, it's broken in the real
I haven't tried this on 5.6 - I can't get OG to build on 5.6 here.
Anyone want to try it? I'm not expecting utf-8 under 5.6, I'm just
expecting it to not break.
Anything else anyone can find, I'd love to know about.
