Description Robert Vogelgesang 2007-01-29 17:53:41 UTC
Description of problem:
Recent versions of unrtf have "improved" codepage support, but when
converting RTFs e. g. using codepage 1252, the "umlauts" are not properly
handled.  Earlier versions of unrtf did manage to convert these characters.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.20.2 and earlier

How reproducible:
Always when converting RTFs using codepage 1252 with umlauts's.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. unrtf --html RTF.rtf
Actual results:
The generated HTML contains HTML comments that specify the hex code of the
umlaut characters.

Expected results:
No added HTML comments, but instead properly converted umlauts.

Additional info:
See the attached patch for a fix.  This patch was also submitted to the
upstream maintainers, but without response from them since October 2006.
