Please report any other irregularities here.
When you import a Netscape 4.73 addressbook (.LDIF) danish chars no longer appears correct. A danish "æ" æ get imported as "Ã¦". This used to work! Build 2000060308
The LDIF entry: dn: cn=HÃ¦nrik Gemal,firstname.lastname@example.org modifytimestamp: 20000223100831Z cn: HÃ¦nrik Gemal mail: email@example.com xmozillausehtmlmail: FALSE givenname: HÃ¦nrik sn: Gemal objectclass: top objectclass: person should give me: Hænrik Gemal

Looks like a big regression. Yes, this used to work during M16.I have a build from 4/16 on my hard disk and it works with my multiligual data as well as Latin1 & Japanese data imports with .ldif files. But another build I have from 5/16 exhibits the same problem Gemal talks about. So does the build from 6/3/2000. Nominating for nsbeta2.

It looks like we are misconverting UTF-8 data in .ldif files.
I believe this is the same bug as 38844. Import utility has convert the UTF-8 string twice in ldif file. I have the fix.

Putting on [nsbeta2+] radar for beta2 fix.
