Linux CVS build from 20010513. I can't enter ISO8859-1 8bit characters into text entry fields. They get displayed as a funny inverted "?" symbol and submitted as a literal "?". This means when I type e.g. the proper German name of Cologne or Munich into a form entry it gets submitted as "M?nchen", which may render it impossible for the server to process the request correctly.
doesn't sound like a sizing issue - reassigning

an URL for the problem?
URL? any one with a text entry field, just try www.yahoo.de (since that's in german it definitely needs to accept iso8859-1)
Running 2001051308 / Win98SE, I tried http://www.google.de and http://www.yahoo.de All three accepted 'ä','ü','ö','ß' etc. Furthermore, running this build, I just typed these "Umlaute" in Bugzilla's textbox.
assigning to ftang for initial investigation -- Frank, this looks like it may be a wfm, but I wanted you to look at it first.

Linux-only issue? Maybe some fonts are missing or something like that? no problem on Win2K
can you make a screen shot and attach to the bug report ?
Status: UNCONFIRMED → ASSIGNED
Ever confirmed: true
does it always show this <?> for latin text? This looks like an rendering issue, not an input issue. Maski- can you help to take a look at this ? From the screenshot, It seems a ISO10646 font get used and claim it have such glyph but it only have the replacement glyph. are you using TTF ?

It is not _just_ a rendering issue. The chars are submitted as an ASCII question mark. Pressing the search button I find %3F in the URL at the place of any umlaut. I do use TT fonts but the exact same config works fine in Mozilla 0.9, has anything changed since wrt. font selection? Even if it is a font problem, this should not affect form submission and we have a slightly different bug.
I've checked this on nightly on Solaris, yes, actually I can not enter into the text field in the web page. I want to ask you to verify the following, Sorry for stupid question, I know how to input german on only Solaris. Can you tell me the exact instruction on Linux with Japanese keyboards??? - Is this problem new on 0513 build? How about Mozilla 0.9, 0.8, 0.7? - What will happen when you copy&past german text to the field - What will happen when you type in URL field. (not on the input field, try URL field of Mozilla, also text field on Find dialog) In my environment of Solaris, I could enter in URL field and text field of Find. This problem happens on text field of web page, compose window. Thanks.

I see this problem the first time. It is definitely not in 0.9 or dailies from the weeks preceding it. When I type an a-umlaut in the URL field, it gets displayed as the inverted question mark symbol and submitted as %EF%BF%BD. That is UTF-8 for #FFFD, the Unicode "replacement character", which is apparently also the character which produces that strange glyph. Copy and paste works in form field. Copy and paste in URL field displays correctly and submits in UTF-8. Typing in Find dialog produces the replacement character, paste in Find dialog works.
I found the exact problem and I've attached the patch in bug 74088. If you have time, can you try the patch and put the results into bug 74088? marked as DUP. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 74088 ***
