A problem found while trying out Ecto (an offline blogging tool) - language special characters (in Unicode) are replaced by garbage in the blog posts read by Ecto.
See screenshot: http://captsolo.net/info/my-img/2006/10/ecto-test.png
The distortion of characters happens in the XMLRPC interface of b2evolution: http://bb.infinite-sushi.com/viewtopic.php?t=2015
Fixed this distortion by commenting out these 2 lines in xmlrpc_encode_entities:
// if ($code < 32 || $code > 159) // $character = ("&#".strval($code).";");
But there is a similar problem when posting blog entries containining language special characters (i tried Latvian and Russian) to b2evolution via XMLRPC - they all get turned into '?'.
In Ecto debug console I see that post content is submitted with Unicode characters still in place.
Has anyone seen this problem before and can recommend how to fix it?
I am using b2evo 0.9.2, Ecto 2.1.7 and Blogger API (other API choices in Ecto are MetaWeblog, MovableType and Atom).
