Entering in a unicode character in Safari (e.g. unicode 4E14) generates the following URL when the Search button is pressed: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=%E4%B8%94&btnG=Google+Search By contrast, entering the value in Mozilla, Firebird or Camino when the text encoding is set to unicode generates: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=%E4%B8%94&btnG=Google+Search Mozilla correctly displays the unicode character but the for processor always treats it as ISO-8859-1. Entering the unicode character into the Search fields in the menu bar seems to generate the correct URL. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Check Apple->System Preferences->International->Input Menu->Character Paletter 2. Open Mozilla 3. Goto http://www.google.com 4. Make sure the coding is set to UTF-8 (View->Character Coding...) 5. Character Palette Menu->Show Character Paletter 6. Select unicode 4E14 from the Character Paletter 7. Drag and drop the character from the well in the lower left corner and drag it into the search field on the http://www.google.com web page. 8. Press the search button. Performing the same series of steps in Safari yields a more desirable outcome. Also, using the google search tool bar item in Firebird and Camino results in a search that is the same as Safari. Actual Results: Generated the following URL: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=%E4%B8%94&btnG=Google+Search Expected Results: Should have generated the following URL: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=%E4%B8%94&btnG=Google+Search This is related to bug 158590.
When I goto http://google.com the HTML source sets ie and oe to UTF-8 . Maybe google is trying to detect what charecter set Mozilla can display and then set the values accordingly. WFM LInux 2003122007 The only way I can see what you see is by going to http://www.google.com/search?hl=en .
