Summary0002137: Entering accented characters in URLs
DescriptionThough NetSurf can resolve URLs containing accented characters, these cannot be entered manually into either the top URL bar or the menu's "Open URL" tool.
Steps To ReproduceThe test pieces are http://dahlström.net or http://dahlström.net/svg/favicon/favicon.html

Type it in using alt-246 for the o-umlaut. The character is displayed but the URL is not fetched, the error is "NetSurf is running out of memory. Please free some memory and try again.". Cut and paste, from StrongED also fails. Dragging the selected URL from StrongED to the top URL bar works.
TagsNo tags attached.

Steve: Note that the core (now) expects the URL to be passed as UTF-8 in order to convert non-ASCII characters.
