Description David Fraser 2005-05-18 00:45:59 PDT
In the Afrikaans installer for Firefox 1.0.4, clicking Cancel leads to the Exit
Setup dialog, but the encoding used for the message is incorrect.

The relevant section from the
toolkit/locale/af-ZA/installer/windows/install.properties is below:

DLGQUITTITLE=Sluit Opstellingsprogram af
DLGQUITMSG=U het nie $ProductName$ klaar ge\u00EFnstalleer nie. As u nou die
Opstellingsprogram afsluit, sal $ProductName$ nie ge\u00EFnstalleer word nie. Is
u seker u wil die Opstellingsprogram kanselleer?

The \u00EF is meant to be a "LATIN SMALL LETTER I WITH DIAERESIS" but instead
appears as a sequence of A with a Tilde (\u00C3) and a macron (\u00AF) that
seems to imply that it has been encoded in UTF-8 but displayed as iso-8859-1

I'll attach a screenshot

This is a configuration error, the codepage is set to ANSI_CHARSET (CP1252) but
the messages are in UTF-8. I'll use this bug to track fixing it, so accepting
this...

charsets are no longer, resolving WORKSFORME.
