With build in recent days I have noticed that the Character set optioins have greatly expanded in the view menu. This is overly cluttering this important menu. I do undertand that you need to represent the relation ship between main character set (e.g ISO) and sub-character set (e.g. Western ISO-8859-1). But while this terminology is useful for an esteemed subset of our user base, namely those who understand what those cryptic abbreviations mean, for the rest it will unacceptably clutter the view menu. I suspect even those users who are in need for a international character set do not appreciate the way its being presented. I am in favor of having one item Character Set... that gets you to a dialog with two select list, in the first you have the main character set groups, and dependent on its selection you show the subgroups in the second list. This will map better to the usage fo this feature.
The current items list there is simply a work around because XP toolkit group have not fix the long menu scrolling issue and our charset menu customization work have not done yet.
Right. Also, the future Character Set menu is there too, and when it will be fully functional the present Character Set menu options will be removed. Bug #15482.
German, I sent you a link to the proposal on the Browser Character Coding Menu this week. It's found here: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/intl/uidocs/browsercharmenu.html Would you look it over and send us your comments/suggestions?
sure I'll be happy to take a look at it next week! Thanks!
