Note: The same error came up as I was trying to save this bug report, so whatever version is running the BUG reporting web, has this error too...

This also fails:
  • raw edit
  • paste this text:
    <sticky>&#9792;</sticky>
  • save
  • edit
  • switchToRaw

Wide character in subroutine entry

Trunk and release branch

Using out-of-the-box encoding/locale settings


Evidently Encode::decode() is croaking when it encounters UTF-8 in returnRESTResult in WysiwygPlugin.pm, line 773 (release branch).

I added Crawford and Michael, who are free to remove themselves, I am wondering if this "urgent" because it results in data loss (potentially, although you can save from raw mode).

I will be investigating whether we can stop HTML2TML from touching stuff inside <sticky> once and for all.

-- PaulHarvey - 14 Jan 2010

I would say that getting the code fixed so you at least do not loose data you have just types and want to save it what is important to fix.

Fixing so the UTF characters correctly save is less important with respect to urgentcy.

We need something in the code so it at least survives.

I can see we have had this bug since TWiki days so I will not let is block 1.0.9 but should be seen as urgent for 1.1.

-- KennethLavrsen - 14 Jan 2010

Commenting out:

    # Convert (safe) named entities back to the
    # site charset. Numeric entities are mapped straight to the
    # corresponding code point unless their value overflow.
    #require HTML::Entities;
    #HTML::Entities::_decode_entities( $text, WC::safeEntities() );

"cures" my problem, in that I no longer need the sticky tag, but only if I don't switchToRaw (just save from WYSIWYG).

Using sticky tag does strange things (but at least does not crash)

-- PaulHarvey - 14 Jan 2010

Perhaps a try/catch around the offending call to HTML::Entities would be a simple enough way to avoid losing data...

-- PaulHarvey - 14 Jan 2010

This doesn't fail for me (trunk) though it does screw around with the entities frown

-- CrawfordCurrie - 17 Jan 2010

Not sure if this is the same problem, but on trunk, I've encountered a hard failure resulting is an empty topic after save. Rev 6097

Topic contains a set to use greek letters in the explicit numbering plugin:

   * #Set EXPLICITNUMBERINGPLUGIN_ALPHASEQ = &#945;,&#946;,&#947;,&#948;,&#949;,&#950;,&#951;,&#952;,&#953;,&#954;,&#955;,&#956;

Editing the topic shows the entities in the editor as written above. They are not converted to wide characters. Save results in:

During save of ExplicitNumberingPlugin an error was found by the version control system. Please notify your Foswiki administrator.

I am somewhat in awe of what Foswiki already gets right with converting between TML and HTML, but clearly there is room for improvement. I am trying to capture what Foswiki should do at UnicodeCharactersInNonUtf8Encodings.

Fixed on trunk.
