You wil notice that the second two boxes are blank. These boxes are... box3Obj.appendChild(document.createTextNode('Rèsumè')); box4Obj.appendChild(document.createTextNode('R#232;sum#232;')); http://davidbetz.net/FirefoxBugs/accents/?xhtml=1 If you were to use the alternate testharness at http://davidbetz.net/FirefoxBugs/accents/ (which gives text/html), you will see that everything is working fine. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. http://davidbetz.net/FirefoxBugs/accents/?xhtml=1 2. Look 3. Actual Results: Blank boxes Expected Results: Rèsumè in the boxes The seriousness of this is that none of our XHTML applications can work with proper spelling of certain words. Not the most serious of issues by any means, but it does prevent us from meeting our requirements.
This was with the July 11 Nightly build (Deer Park Alpha 2) as well as Firefox 1.0.4. I've never seen a version that works properly.
