Hey all, I've looked through many posts to see if this issue has come up, I found one back in 2012, but it's likely not related to the recent changes the site is currently going through..
(Relevant post: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=102369&p=1723172&hi ... r#p1723172)
There are loads of examples of this, as a developer myself I know the issue lies with character encoding.
Details:"Studio Ghibli KÅkyÅ KyokushÅ« 13 Stout - Howl's Moving Castle"
Itâ€™s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown! 13 Whalen - Standard
Canâ€™t Stop Me Now 19 Zhang - 1st
April Foolsâ€™ Special 19 STOT21stCplanB - 1st
ã“ã®æ˜Ÿã®ã„ãã‚‚ã®é”ã®é¢¨æ™¯(Landscape of this Planet's - 1st
Terrible Dream (æã‚ã—ã„å¤¢) 16 Goto - 1st
Inversion and Overlap (åè»¢ã¨é‡è¤‡) 17 Shimoda - 1st
I know for a fact that the title of the Tom Whalen, Easter Beagle print should contain a single quotation.. but there are many quotation types:
(As I'm writing this you'll notice you can see the newly supported characters:)APOSTROPHE: '
Unicode Character 'LEFT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK' (U+2018): ‘
Unicode Character 'RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK' (U+2019): ’
If you plug those values into the website listed below you'll see the encoding flip-flops that happened along the way:Expected Result: "It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown! 13 Whalen - Standard"
Actual Result: "Itâ€™s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown! 13 Whalen - Standard"
These 5 encodings have roughly the same charmaps, so they're interchangeable for this exampleDisplaying 5 results
utf-8 (65001, Unicode (UTF-8)) -> windows-1250 (1250, Central European (Windows))
utf-8 (65001, Unicode (UTF-8)) -> Windows-1252 (1252, Western European (Windows))
utf-8 (65001, Unicode (UTF-8)) -> windows-1254 (1254, Turkish (Windows))
utf-8 (65001, Unicode (UTF-8)) -> windows-1256 (1256, Arabic (Windows))
utf-8 (65001, Unicode (UTF-8)) -> windows-1258 (1258, Vietnamese (Windows))
So that leaves us with the main question: do admins understand this issue, and is there a plan to fix it?
