Hi, when you create the document and fill propertis of that document (with letters with diacritical marks), the DocInfo is saved using UTF-8 even when saving as Word 6 or Word 95. But those version do not know UTF8. The attached patch was used as a raw method of saving from OOo 1.1beta to Word 6 and Word 95 for Czech version.

Could it be, that you already have an issue, which describes this problem? If so, feel free to return this to me as duplicate. Thank you very much!

Hmm, its nothing to with the filter itself. Its the shared summaryinformation stream code. I seem to half remember that something like that was introduced to provide support for unicode properties in the first place. So I don't know what the solution to retaining unicode properties and word 6's inability to understand them could be. Obviously the patch only works for czech documents.

Could be quite elaborate, because currently the code does not know anything about the format it writes to. From the SFX point of view, it just writes a summary information, not a word file (and of course the exact version of it is not known). So this bugfix needs a deeper investigation and unfortunately this does not qualify it to be fixed in the OOo1.1 version.

It looks like the filter should convert the document info data to the appropriate for the format encoding. Henning, could you please take a look.
