The letter "y-acute" (hex 00FD, dec 235) is
essential for Czech. If I import UTF-16 text from
a file or copy it from an application, this
character displays as the well-known Apple
trademark (on a Mac with 10.3.6. RR 2.5). The
htmltext of a field with this character will be <
p>ý< /p> (spaces deliberately inserted to
avoid messing up mailreaders).
I can type this character from the keyboard
(Unicode Hex Input kbd, opt+00FD) and it shows up
fine. The htmltext is < p>< font face="Geneva"
lang="en-UC">ý< /font>< /p>. I can fix the
problem in a way with an ugly replace hack in the
htmltext, but it won't put its head down - if add
add text to a field by:
set the unicodetext of fld 1 to the unicodetext
of fld 1 & the unicodetext of fld 2
- then any proper y-acutes in field 2 are again
converted into apples when added to field 1. I
can avoid this by clumsy copy-and-paste routines,
but this shouldn't be necessary.
I have reported this as a bug some time under 2.0
(#542), but it was returned as non-reproducible.
