Ticket #17 (closed defect: worksforme)
Importing Special Characters
|Reported by:||reg@…||Owned by:||gogo|
|Severity:||normal||Keywords:||Paste Word SpecialCharacter|
Description (last modified by gogo) (diff)
My app operates in English using the standard character set but occasionally includes foreign words requiring characters from other character sets (Latin, Greek, etc. -- no double-byte stuff)
We are expecting to be able to create the string in Word and then paste it into the browser. What happens is variable, but never complete success. In some instances the last character of a string of randomly selected special characters does not get saved; in some, none of the string gets saved
I have tried pasting sometimes into the htmlarea control and sometimes into the html textarea itsslf and then switching back and forth to see what gets pasted or saved, etc. and no combination seems to work reliably.
But it is not a complete failure because, once at least, most of the characters I wanted were saved.
I have tried with this.killWordOnPaste = false and this.killWordOnPaste = true
Anyone else having this problem (or better yet, solved it)? Or am I doing something wrong?
