Subject: CSV export of tickets has wrong encoding Date: Jan 16, 2008 Author: jho Source: http://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/6656 Ticket #6656 (new defect) ... Description When I download a CSV version of a ticket report, all the Umlaut characters (Ã¶,Ã¼,Ã¤, etc.) are displayed incorrectly (i.e.: instead of Ã¤ I get ÃƒÂ¤) The export is currently done using UTF-8 and it's true that Excel for one doesn't like that... Given that Excel expects UTF16-BE (according to some sources, like http://www.herongyang.com/unicode/utf.html, not yet verified), it might be worth changing if other tools like OpenOffice also understand that encoding.
