#1076 closed defect (fixed)

Input charset used for htmldoc should not be trac default

Reported by: tonin Owned by: tonin
Priority: high Component: PageToPdfPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: charset
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


As we know, htmldoc isn't utf-8 compatible. However, quite a lot of Trac site these days are using utf-8 as default_charset. This parameter is needed so that utf-8 encoded comments in subversion are rendered correctly under the source browser.

So using this same default_charset as encoding for input feeded to htmldoc is problematic. We'd better use the output charset for this purpose.

See attached patch as proposed solution. I also added a html meta tag containing this charset so that eventually newer version of htmldoc will correctly use it.

There's still a problem in case the page from which we generate the PDF contains characters that cannot be represented in the desired output charset. For info, the supported HTMLDOC charsets currently are
