German language

Hello,

I`ve noticed downloading German websites, that your program seems to have a problem with German language letters (e.g.: a).

Looking at a German page with IE or Firefox everything looks fine. After downloading the page with OE Pro all the German language language letters are wrong (e.g. instead of "a" I get an "A¤"). As I want to further process downloaded texts, this is a real mess.

Hope you can help.

Hello Oleg,

thanks for your support.

Just go to the portal page of parlament.gv.at and look how the same page is displayed after the download. Letters lie A, a, O, o, U, u, ? will be incorrect.

I just tried to load the page and it looks well in Offline Explorer. I think, you can try to right-click the page in the browser and choose Encoding > UTF-8 in the list.

Hello Oleg,

thanks for the tip. With UTF-8 it looks ok in the internal browser.

The culpable seems to be Firefox (right now I have version 1.0 Preview release). If the downloaded page is viewed with Firefox I have the above mentioned problems with German letters.

Viewing the page with Internet Explorer they are fine, too.

Thanks again

Marcelo

I think, FireFox should also have the ability to display a Web page in a different encoding. Try the View menu > Character Encoding. At least, it works well in Firefox 0.9.

Hi again,

how can I ensure that the web pages I selected are downloaded with UTF-8 encoding?

All pages are downloaded as they are. It is just the browser which sometimes selects wrong encoding when displaying the page.
