I had this error message when I saved page with non-ascii characters.

Traceback message:

I think this error is a same on 0.59.0, maybe utf-8 decode of wiki name?? (#1365, #714 and #1330)

Thanks for the report. Do you see this with Zwiki 0.60rc1 ?

Thank you. Yes, I see this with Zwiki 0.60rc1. But wiki every pages are not broken. I can see every pages from subtopics or contents link.

encoding --simon, Wed, 05 Sep 2007 09:22:35 -0700 reply

Some of your examples on this page look corrupted to me, I think because they use Shift-JIS encoding. Current Zwiki requires that you use UTF-8 encoding always, like this:


This should always display correctly in page bodies, page names, bracket links, contents, recent changes etc. The url will be horrible though ([] - better ideas welcome!).

With your browser set to utf-8 encoding, can you reproduce the error ? On this site ?

Yes, using UTF-8 encoding in this test --koyoshi, Tue, 11 Sep 2007 08:14:58 -0700 reply

Oh! Thank you Simon for your comments.

My Test report's evironments are used UTF-8. Zope is not able to use Shift_JIS encording for Japaese language. About 5 years ago, I was using EUC-JP with Zope-2.5.1. But now I am using UTF-8 with Zoepe-2.8.0 or laters for Internationalizing uses. May be, almost of Japanese zope users are using UTF-8 now.

Now, I have some questions. Is site drived with Zope-2.10.x? And if with Zope-2.10.x, I want to testing in yor site's SandBox for this problem.

May I do it? At least, There is no risk in doing.(I think.)

I have two testing envoronments now. 2 server gived the same result. I am unable to find an effective move ,now.

  1. Server1
  • OS: RHEL5 x68_64 ,Zope-2.10.4, ZWiki-0.60.0rc1, PlacelessTranslationService?-1.2.1
  1. Server2
  • OS: Wimdows2000Pro ,Zope-2.10.3, ZWiki-0.60.0rc1, PlacelessTranslationService?-1.2.1

# Thanks. And excuse me. I can't put two sentences together. I have a problem with English expressions. I'm a native Japanese.

Yes, using UTF-8 encoding in this test --Simon Michael, Tue, 11 Sep 2007 08:19:59 -0700 reply

No problem. Yes, please test on this wiki, it won't do any harm. Yes, Zwiki is compatible with Zope 2.10.

Yes, using UTF-8 encoding in this test --simon, Sat, 15 Sep 2007 10:30:52 -0700 reply

Hi Koyoshi (please let me know if I used the wrong name). To answer your question more precisely: yes is running Zope 2.10.4.

As I understand it right now:

Am I understanding correctly ? Thanks.

Almost correctly ( + supplemental report) --koyoshi, Sun, 16 Sep 2007 21:58:17 -0700 reply

Hi Simon. Thank you very much.

> * the problem is only when using IE6 (what about IE7 ?)

only when using IE6 (not IE7) with charset=utf-8(auto selected)

> * the problem is only with non-ascii characters in the page name (non-ascii characters page body works fine)

Yes This ploblem is only with non-ascii characters name page, when it's edited. ( and non-ascii characters page body works fine and have nothing changes.)

> * on your servers, when you edit a non-ascii-named page in IE6, you get the above error

Yes, I get the error 100% of the time. when do it.

> * when you do the same thing on, it works ? but renames the page to http:/ ?

Now, when I test on work normally. but when I tested on at last week. renamed an ediing page as There was a liitle difference between and my servers. My servers never rename editing pages. and always make a child page that named unreadable and missing decode characters.

If there is no difference between and my servers on version zwiki ,Zope and PTS. I think this problem is on only my servers setup. then, I tried to change PTS version(1.2.1 => 1.3.5) and setting of zope.conf. But, I can not get a way.I was wondering if I could ask you a favor. let me know why do zwiki retry to decode existing page name.

Some simple examples follow.

I think probably this is a common problem in multi-byte character languages(ex. Chinese,Korean and Japanese).

Ok. I think you will see the same problem in a simple non-plone wiki. If so we can forget about plone and PTS versions. I'm going to forget about the one-time weird page rename on for now. Another difference between and your server could be character encoding. Eg:

I'm very sory, I'm ashamed to say, I can't too this english sentence, sory. In other words, I don't understand working of edit() in Why It makes Page X_c3_af_c2_bc_c2_a1 when editing a page ef_bc_a1 ?

After I commented, I found messages in log/event.log. example:

At this time, my ad hok patch for analysis --koyoshi, Tue, 09 Oct 2007 00:34:58 -0700 reply

It enabled to save a non-ascii-named page. But, created a garbled name page.

  1. Stop Raise Exception CopyError

## 333 line edit():

  1. Stop Create a garbled name Page again

## 307 line edit():

Untested patch 2007-10-15 --nobuyuki-koyoshi, Sun, 14 Oct 2007 09:25:58 -0700 reply

tal:attributes="value page" 49 line is not safty. It like #1330's patch .

I think this patch is a strong candidate for this issue. I'll try to test other Zope servers in some days.

Could anyone try to apply this patch on your test zope servers?

Untested patch 2007-10-15 --betabug, Sun, 14 Oct 2007 10:16:45 -0700 reply

Tested your patch with IE6 (W2k), Safari and Firefox (on Mac), it does not break anything. I don't know if it fixed anything, because I could not reproduce the problem before.

That hidden input field should not really contain values that are not ascii, e.g. after rendering it should be something like value="X_e3_83_86_e3_82_b9_e3_83_88" - but maybe that "should" is the bug.

Hi Betabug thank you for your quickly testing and comment.

I had thought so, that you said. But, this patch is working perfectly with my two test servers(W2K,RHLE5). Sure, It not make CopyError and garbled named page with IE6,firefox and seamonkey.

I wonder how it comes that. I feel a need for analysis. network packets, configuration of zope and os. Please, Give me one week to do.
