StructuredText formatting and hyperlinks support only ascii characters by default. To support international characters you'll need to install a patch. There are several floating around, it's not clear which is the best. Please update this information.

First patch didn't work ! --Wed, 13 Oct 2004 09:53:18 -0700 reply

Applied patch. After restarting Zope I tryed to see the page and it was the same.

Success with second patch --Wed, 16 Mar 2005 01:20:47 -0800 reply

I downloaded the version 1.0.0 of the second patch (stx_18n_patch), applied it and changed the locale setting in zope.conf to "locale es_ES.ISO8859-1" . Now I can use tildes and ñ within structured text documents correctly. Thanks to kedder for the patch, and to sm for pointing me to this page.

Patch that worked for me --Thu, 30 Jun 2005 02:42:45 -0700 reply

I tried this:(hxxp://keysolutions.ru/Products/RuGear?/) product and it solved (almost) all problems for me (except buggy STX tables rendering)
