|Summary||0001097: Special characters which have no HTML-entities are not properly escaped|

||I have implemented a fix and deployed it on the test server. Please review and test.|
I just checked with Russian where the characters are not shown properly on the productive system. In the test server it seems to be correct.
s20121024.282 works on https://cacert1.it-sls.de/
But the use of html-entities
"& 0001042;& 0001099; & #1085;& 0001086;& 0001074;& 0001080;& 0001095;& 0001086;& 0001082; & 0001074; CAcert?"
instead of Unicode characters
"Вы новичок в CAcert?"
Why do you use charset=iso-8859-1 when the whole world is using utf-8 for multilingual sites?
PHP from v5.4 use $encoding = 'UTF-8' by default.
||@hsw because the software we use is code that was originally written for PHP4 and switching to UTF-8 for the whole thing as much as I would want that, is a major task. Right now we just don't have the man power to do such a thing.|
For Bulgarish, Russian, Japanese show wrong characters.
I found the following a chinese/japanese name is shown correct while assuring, and in points 10.php.
In the SE console and in 15.php it is not displayed correct.
Retested due to mail from Ulrich. Still found wrong characters though. For example, the bottom line of the bulgarian home page shows some characters as numbers: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/6874986/broken_bulgarian.png
The same thing also happens in japanese.
@INOPIAE & JensK broken Bulgarian is because of broken translation. The translation as on the translation server contains the literal string "Политика на &0001087;оверително&0001089;т" while they should just contain the characters (e.g. copied from the symbol table if entering via keyboard is not possible). I have corrected the string in the translation server to "Политика на поверителност" and updated the translation files on the test server. Now the characters look all right. I guess that's the same for the other languages, could you please check that?
So as I see it this is no bug in the patch but in the translations entered into the translation server.
Just checked all available languages again. I did not find any misinterpreted characters, so I'd say this bug is fixed.
I found a few more errors like the one mentioned above though. I checked some of them on the translation server, and they were all in the translation like NEOatNHNG wrote.
Lingála (not yet activated) could become another challenge for misinterpreted characters. At http://translations.cacert.org the accents are well shown on a-e-i-o-u vowely, but not on open e (ɛ) and open o (ɔ). In this case, they apears on the following consonant.
Example: PDF Form no 13: "Adɛlɛ́sɛ"
(When copying it here, it is shown as "Adɛlɛ´sɛ" and I do not know, if it becoms with the accent on the ɛ as it should or on the s as it should not after saving the note.
At ln.wikipedia.org, the solution is (since 2005) a CSS indicating the fonts that put the accents well,  because until this two letters are added also with accents to unicode, they are shown correctly only with some fonts, but not with all (a lot of tests done by Moyogo and me in 2005).
 https://ln.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discussion_utilisateur:Eruedin#Affichage_de_.C9.94.CC.81_et_.C9.9B.CC.81 (in french, with link to the css)
Tested by 2, Lingala currently out-of-scope, should be done once activated in life system.
2nd Review by Dirk.
||The patch has been installed on the production server on January 17, 2013. See also: https://lists.cacert.org/wws/arc/cacert-systemlog/2013-01/msg00006.html|
