Chamorro module encoding problems

    Details

      Description

      I just discovered that there are two issues in chamorro.conf for version 2.7 of the Chamorro module.

      (a) The conf file itself is not UTF-8 encoded
      (b) The following line is missing, and default encoding is Latin-1
      Encoding=UTF-8

      Although the module text was displayed OK in Xiphos, it was not correctly displayed in xulsword.

      Adding Encoding=UTF-8 solves the xulsword issue, but see further below in my added comments.

      Converting the conf file to UTF-8 without BOM also fixes some display issues for the text in the About line.

        I think for the time being, I'd just be content to converting the conf file itself to be encoded UTF-8.

        This solves one issue, displaying the About line in Xiphos correctly.

        The xulsword text display issue may turn out to be a xulsword software issue.

        I'll take this up further with the developer.

        Updated conf file with only the change to its encoding. This version should be used, not the earlier one.

        Further evidence: The Chamorro module displays OK in JSword apps such as And Bible.

        However, it is still the case the the About line shows a few replacement characters.

        FIO.

        The issue applies ONLY to xulsword standalone version 2.25 for Windows.

        It seems to have been already solved in the xulsword add-on version 3.4 for Firefox.

        I've updated the xulsword issue accordingly.

        Chamorro has recently been updated and I see no encoding problems with diatheke and Xiphos.
        Is your report still valid?
