Description

Generally this is working much better. However, today I tried pasting special
characters and quotes using from Word and I had some strange things happen when
opening and saving. First I filled out the form and cut and pasted special
characters in the the Sampling Description section of
http://dev.nceas.ucsb.edu/knb/metacat?action=read&qformat=nceas&docid=nrs.853.1

When I opened it in Morpho The special symbols and the quotes did not display
correctly in Morpho. Then I added some special characters and quotes using
Morpho (cut and pasted form Word) in the Abstract section.

http://dev.nceas.ucsb.edu/knb/metacat?action=read&qformat=nceas&docid=nrs.853.2

Online the Abstract section looked good but online the Sampling Description no
longer displayed correctly.

I again opened the data package from the network on Morpho and the Abstract
section no longer displayed correctly. I didn't try saving it to the network
afterwards.

Callie. Yeah, it is known that the morpho has problem to handle special
character. This is not metacat bug. It is morpho one. I will close the bug and
open one in morpho.

we are moving to UTF-8 encoding for the files. While this will help us render special characters, it won't solve the copy+paste from Word issue in which we go from one encoding used in Word to the clipboard (no metadata about character encoding) to Morpho (UTF-8). It has been suggested that we "guess" on some of these characters and translate them into their UTF-8 encoding. This is the extent of discussion so far.
