Description bulbul 2003-11-02 00:35:21 UTC
When exporting a document with characters outside the ISO-8859-1 character set
to HTML in ISO-8859-1, an error message will pop up claiming that the characters
can't be displayed. However, the filter actually translates them (or at least
the Latin extended characters i've tried) correctly to HTML using codes like
"ĉ". The characters are displayed correctly in my browser in the exported
HTML document. The text of the error dialog is this:

   Warning saving the document html-export-chars.html
   Write error.
   The following chars could not be displayed in the selected char set:
   [the characters]

I'm attaching an OOo document with three non-8859-1 characters. With your
Options -> Save/Load -> HTML -> Character Set set to  ISO-8859-1, save the
document to HTML. The dialog will appear even though the output file displays
the characters correctly.

If this is the desired behavior, perhaps the wording of the error dialog could
be revised. It currently gives the impression that the characters will not be
displayed. In any case, the text should be corrected by putting a colon after
the word "warning".

Confirmed RH9/1.1.0 and 680m11  

Changed Priority to P4 -- aside from the typo, perhaps the warning
message could more accurately reflect the behavior.

This message box and the whole encoding behaviour will have to be
redesingned according to issue 19690
