(Reporter: tonymec, Assigned: justdave)




Reproducible: Always

How to reproduce:
1. Browse to http://www.mozilla.org/owners.html#mail-and-news-backend

Actual results:
Under "Peers", the u-umlaut in Düsterloh is dispayed as a Unicode "invalid character" glyph (black diamond with white question mark)

Expected results:
The ü should display as ü

Additional information:
The page is supposed to be UTF-8 (and the copyright sign at the very bottom is correctly displayed) but the u-umlaut is encoded in Latin1 (aka iso-8859-1) as 0xFC which is not a valid "single byte" in UTF-8. It should be encoded using one of the following representations:
- Native UTF-8: 0xC3 0xBC
- Symbolic entity: ampersand followed by uuml and semicolon
- Unicode hex number entity: ampersand followed by #xFC and semicolon
- Unicode decimal entity: ampersand followed by #252 and semicolon
Karsten: since the bug is in the display of your name, I thought you belonged in the CC.
Now that http://www.mozilla.org/owners.html is a redirect to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Modules the problem doesn't exist anymore.

I'm resolving this as WFM because I don't know where it was fixed. If you do, feel free to change it to FIXED or DUPLICATE with an appropriate link in a comment.
