[sword-devel] Unicode and newlines
Sun, 23 Jun 2002 19:02:53 +0600
Why in non Unicode mode (when !isUnicode()), you do special processing for
'\n' and '\r' (in preptext()) such as '\n'->' ', while in Unicode mode you
don't call preptext() and leave '\n' and '\r' as is?
My guess: may be even under "broken-line" Windows in UTF-8 line end is encoded
the same as in Unix, to by "\n\r", may not it?
I first created the '\n' replacement system which is described in my earlier
messages. I recently found that when module is encoded in UTF-8 the things are
Replacement '\n'->' ' on reading module entries (by getRawEntry()) creates
problems with editing, as the pretty formatting of XML is lost. No such
problem with UTF-8. (However I haven't yet checked whether empty lines in
entries work even with UTF-8.) Are we going to completely switch to UTF-8?
What is the long term solution of the problem with broken formatting and
