Special Character Inputs

Postby matthoughton on Fri Feb 04, 2011 4:19 pm

Hi,

I'm doing some testing with special characters and can't get WYMEditor to properly handle them.

For instance, my string is:
Code: Select all
“test1” ‘test2’


I paste this into the WYM editor window and see exactly that string. In the HTML input, it shows exactly the same (surrounded by <p> tags).

However, when I parse the WYM text to the next script, it actually shows this:
Code: Select all
<p>“test1” ‘test2’</p>


Any ideas how I can prevent this from happening? Obviously my filters to prevent this come in too late as it is actually the editor window doing the switch.

Thanks
matthoughton

Just thought I'd share the solution. Nothing really to do with wymeditor, but the encoding of its parent page.

Code: Select all
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />


It would appear that the UTF character set can't cope with those characters. Change to a different encoding and filters can be incorporated to prevent them being saved.

/Job done
