Rapidweaver index.html file not Vietnamese language friendly

(Chris Walker) #1

Please provide a few details in the following format so we can help you as quickly as possible!

RapidWeaver Version: 6.2.3 (14912)
System Version: 10.10.4
Hardware: 13-Inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, 2.7GHz Processor, 128 GB SSD Storage, 8GB Memory.

Note: I am a very happy RW user. The problem I am trying to solve is not a game stopper but I’d like to solve it or at least understand why it is happening.

Go to www.web-ranking.vn and you will see my website written in Vietnamese language. I am using the Theme called Simple offered by Realmac Software. When I view my website in all browsers the Vietnamese language displays perfectly. The problem arrises when I view source. In fact the problem is noticeable before I ever upload the website. The problem starts in the index.html file that RW generates. The Vietnamese characters are not displayed correctly. For example,

meta name=“keywords” content="seo l & a g r a v e ; g & i g r a v e ; "
meta name=“description” content=“SEO là gì? SEO là viết tắt của Search Engine Optimization hay tiếng Việt gọi là Tối ưu ho & a a c u t e ; c & o c i r c ; n g cụ t & i g r a v e ; m kiếm.”

	<title>SEO là gì?</title>

Expected Result:
When RW generates the index.html file all Vietnamese characters should display correctly; not be translated to “& a g r a v e” or “& a a c u t e”

Note that the site Title is the same as the meta keyword. The Site Title displays perfect but the meta keyword does not.

I have troubleshoot this for a week now.
I believe the solution can not be implemented by Yourhead Stacks
I believe the solution can not be implemented by Theme Developers
I believe the solution can be implemented by adjusting the way RW creates the index.html file.
Question, when the index.html file is saved, what format is it saved as?

Again, I am a big RW fan. Unfortunately for me, I live in Vietnam and have customers wanting websites in Vietnamese language. When they see the source code full of unusual characters they complain to me. I really would like to solve this problem. Thanks for your help in advance.

That is very frustrating. I’ve been complaining about RW doing this for years. It doesn’t do it in all circumstances but I can’t work out exactly what circumstances. It doesn’t happen if the text is input using a unicode CMS, of course, so Armadillo pages (for instance) are fine.
