Subject: Tech: A subtle Mudcat upgrade?
From: DMcG

I am fairly sure we used to have a problem that non ascii characters showed up as invalid, the most obvious being versions of single and double quotation marks that have the 6-9 style rather strictly vertical as in the ANSII set. So for a long time when I posted a clipping from elsewhere I carefully changed the punctuation. I have just posted one without doing that and Mudcat has displayed the result happily on my phone. But I can't tell if this is just because I posted it, or if others can see these characters happily.

Are they now supported?

A “test”. Another ‘test’.

There's been an outbreak of diarrhœa in Pangæa, too.

I wonder if like many other websites it has started converting to 'fancy quotes' as well as just accepting them

No. That's good. ABC code in posts won't get mangled as it does elsewhere.

Thanks, DaveRo. But I feel sure people were having trouble with characters more recently than that - I seem to remember something on iPad characters appearing as squares quite recently. My question, I suppose, is, technically, whether the database behind Mudcat has been changed to support Unicode characters when it did not seem to do so in the past?

Let's make a test: “iPod quote”.

The quote seems to work, but not the non-English characters. The HTML has been switched to UTF-8 some time ago, but, as DMcG rightly points out, the script that writes the stuff into the database has not followed suit, possibly with a few hand-selected exceptions?
