      Description

      Hi,

      I just checked version 2.1.0_005 and the issue of incorrectly drawing characters is better, but still not completely fixed; at least it did not take down Sakai. As the attached screen image will show, the Title of an assignment is mangled; for comparison, the title should be the same as is shown in the assignment body.

      A separate, but related additional note: in another test, I have foreign characters in the title of a MS Word document I uploaded as an assignment attachment. When the title was stored in the database, the foreign characters were replaced by regular characters. That is, "Fore[accent grave]ign Do[accent acute]cument.doc" is in the database as "Foregin Document.doc."

      Hope this is clear and makes sense.

      Jim
