As a point of similarity, this issue also occurs with desktop native installation (see bug 733482). Seeing that this happens in more than spot makes me think that this UTF-8 character issue could be more areas we have not looked at yet.
We should definitely include some non-ASCII manifests in our testing (right now all our test manifests are strictly ASCII).
Hey jason I had written a manual test with japanese characters.
In the interim, could you add this test to your smoketest.
To do that you need to run the node test server, and load appstore.html
the above app will be listed to be installed, and you should be able to install to the dashboard, view on dashboard..etc
Yup, I've added the UTF-8 character test on native install here on test case IA-15 (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AiZoGR-iOAlUdDdfMHo5aTI2WjVIeWxnNWxvV0ZVOWc#gid=0).
I you post the manifest somewhere I can add it to the /appdir/ list
ian that touches on another issue which is where / how to host test apps ......
I think the staging server would be a good spot for this, the question is whether we can get ops to open some firewall ports so we can run the node.js test server.
i think that would be optimal
I think appengine or heroku might be better hosting options for samples.
Filed bug 738845 for the hosting of test apps. Let's pull the conversation on the test case applications over to that bug.
Jason, do you have an eta on this bug fix ?
Which bug are you referring to? This one? Bug 738845? If it's bug 738845, please comment in that bug.
I was referring to this bug.
This is an implementation bug - I'm not the appropriate person to fix this bug.
k, wanted to determine if you had more information about the bug than I did...
Fabrice: do you have an eta on this bug fix ?
I'll probably have a fix by the end of next week
Nominating for k9o - this affects localized b2g apps

Tested by changing some manifest.webapp files in gaia to use utf-8 instead of the current escaping.

Testing on desktop, this looks okay outside of the regression that was caught on Android. I'll want to test this on Firefox OS though to be sure.

Verified on 8/6/2012 Firefox OS Daily Build with Ed Lee's app with Japanese characters.
