Description oc 2010-07-19 15:11:19 UTC
In Firefox select some contents and copy to Spreadsheet via ctrl-c ctrl-v => the
content of the clipboard is pasted in one cell as HTML-source instead of
multiple cells in HTML format

Comment 2 niklas.nebel 2010-07-20 18:11:10 UTC
The problem with Copy&Paste from Firefox is only on Linux/Solaris, but the same
effect can be seen on all platforms by opening the attached file as HTML (Calc).

It's caused by the missing SetSwitchToUCS2 call in EditHTMLParser (used to be
derived from SfxHTMLParser).
Comment 3 niklas.nebel 2010-07-20 18:14:27 UTC
Note: Writer doesn't seem to call SetSwitchToUCS2 either, but doesn't have the
problem. It's probably handled in a different way.
Comment 4 niklas.nebel 2010-07-20 18:31:54 UTC
Ignore the previous comment. Writer of course doesn't have a problem because it
still uses SfxHTMLParser (but the call can't be removed from SfxHTMLParser).
Comment 5 Mathias_Bauer 2010-07-28 09:40:42 UTC
I don't understand the last comment, but anyway: the fix is easy, just copy some
code from the ctor of SfxHTMLParser to the EditEngHTMLParser.

As all existing HTML parsers use that code, perhaps we can move that to the base
class later. For a showstopper fix that would be too much, IMHO.
