Description sforbes 2004-07-22 07:26:57 UTC
When opening a HTML file which does not specify it's encoding, OOo incurrectly defaults to western, leading of opening files which are not western as junk, with no way for the user to fix the display from within OOo. As such files are common, international users will run in to this quite a bit. Instead, OOo should either default to whatever is specified as it's locale (under tools--options--languages) or ask the user (the way it does with CSV files for example). Steps to repro: * Save the file attached to this bug (Hebrew HTML file, no encoding declaration). * Open OOo, and from within it, open the file Actual result: The file contents are displayed as junk Expected result: OOo should either default to whatever is specified as it's locale (under tools--options--languages) or ask the user (the way it does with CSV files for example).
