I would like to share my experience concerning the display of
multi-byte utf-8 characters.
I was trying to adapt UI/login.html to my needs with french accented
But 3 multi-bytes (e.g. éèà) where displalyed as 6 individual characters .
the bottom-line is that html-files , like UI/login.html e.g. ,
containing multi-byte utf-8 characters , should be written to disk
a "byte order mark" BOM at the start of Unicode files.
reason: subroutine _decode_unicode in package Template::Provider
checks for this !!!
Maybe a notice concerning "byte order mark" could be dropped in ./doc/faq.html
