Hi Jeremy and John,
Thank you very much Jeremy for your very detailed answer ! I checked
in Gitit source and found various occurences of usage of Byte8
strings, which John as confirmed.
I switched template.html to advertising encoding of iso-8859-1 and
things are working ok. I setup LANG (and LC_ALL) to fr_FR.UTF-8. When
I set meta tag with utf-8 encoding, things get messy.
John: I checked your url and, oddly enough, characteres appears OK
when I manually change page display encoding to latin-1. I came to the
possibly obvious conclusion that:
-gitit communicated with HApps hence the outside world in latin-1
- talk to git in utf-8
Is this the right picture ?
If so, then I have part of the problem solved. Using latin-1 for
input/display is annoying only for the € (euro) symbol.
BTW, my accents problem solved, I would like to work with RSS feeds so that:
1. a user could put a feed inside a page
2. gitit could produce feeds for changes/adds
I have done things like that before in Java but would need some
directions to incorporate it in gitit.
