From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:0.9.4+) Gecko/20010921 BuildID: 2001092108 Chinese / Japanese text does not copy / paste correctly from Mozilla to another application; within Mozilla it works fine. In addition, copying text from another application and paste it into Mozilla works fine also. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to a Chinese / Japanese website (localized Yahoo page, for example) 2. Copy text from the page, and paste it in another application (SimpleText, for example). Actual Results: Question marks ("???") was pasted instead of the actual text. Expected Results: Chinese / Japanese text should be pasted.
Assiging Mac bugs to jbetak until nhotta comes back.
Which App? I know simple text does not work. but it seems most of the MacOS X app which implement 'utxt' format work now. Also, I believe this is related to the 'vers' resource. current, we will convert Unicode to the system script which the 'vers' resource is. So... if the Japanese version mark 'vers' as Japanese, then we should copy/paste Japanese to SimpleText without problem. yxia, please make sure you tag the 'vers' langauge value correctly on Mac. That will also impact Copy and Paste.
? I don't get it. Does it mean if Ja people use our US build on their Ja system, they won't be able to copy/paste?
On Mac9.1-Ja OS & Japanese SimpleText editor: I can copy/paste from N6.x browser to SimpText editor, and when I save the file and re-open it though SimpleText, the characters still display proerly. (used 09-24 branch build) So we can do copy/paste pages fine if user is using a localized OS even with our US build. This problem is: Copy/Paste Japanese or Chinese from US OS to US SimpleText editor, it shows "?" in the US SimpleText editor even by change the font to a Japanese font.
I'm sorry, I should have clarified my system configuration a bit more. I'm running the US version of MacOS 9.1 with Chinese / Japanese language kits installed. Since (Mr.? Ms. Mrs.?) Yuying Long says that it works under the Japanese version of MacOS 9, I tried registering both Mozilla and SimpleText as Japanese applications; it didn't help, however. In fact, I don't even need to paste the text into another application to see that it won't work: displaying the clipboard under Finder also shows "????" instead of the intended text. All other applications I tested that support Chinese / Japanese will display the correct text in clipboard when copying.
this should probably go to nhotta, since it's Mac only - accepting for now.
yes, let me take this.
Mozilla supported clipboard types for text are 'TEXT' and 'utxt'. 'TEXT' uses localized system setting, so needs Japanese localized system instead of language pack. 'utxt' is a unicode type mozilla supports it but not every app support this type. 'styl', this type maintains style information along with a plain text. On Macintosh, a font id can be mapped to a script id, so application (e.g. simpletext) can maintain script without depending on the localzied system charset. I see more application support 'utxt' in MacOS X. Bug 79864 is for 'styl' support, this is likely to be a dup of that bug. Does copy to mozilla works? Which application are the data copied from?
Hmm...I could have swear that pasting from SimpleText to Mozilla used to work, but it doesn't when I just tried. I tried using 2001080214 and 2001101208; does anyone know how to get 2001092108? It's probably that I forgot to test this case initially and assumed it works, but I want to try it out again just to make sure.

Okay, I'm a moron...pasting Japanese text from SimpleText and ClarisWorks to Mozilla doesn't work even it 2001092108, contrary to what I have claimed.
Okay, then this is a dup of bug 79864, plain text ('TEXT') cannot hold multiple scripts. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 79864 ***
I'm marking this as dup. for now. Please re-open if disagree.
