#678 confirmed Bug

E-mail Link dialog

Keywords: SF Cc: geirhelge@…, deadmoroz@…


The bug appears when editing an e-mail link that contains non-latin characters within its subject or body and document's charset is different from utf-8.

oParser.CreateEMailUri method in fck_link.js escapes non-latin characters from utf-8 charset, so the url when passed into the document remains utf-8 encoded.

The problem is that escape() escapes the chars using the page encode.

I tried to find out something for 2 hours with no success. Maybe something with the RFC822... but nothing for now. More investigation is needed. Let us know if anyone has better results.

Did anyone take a closer look at this problem?

I've been googling all day and tried different solutions, however, none works in all browsers/mail clients.

*/editor/dialog/fck_link/fck_link.js* The function oParser.CreateEMailUri() use the JS function escape() on the subject and the body. Necessary to escape any special characters in the or body. It seems like the escape() function only works for ASCII characters. Found some posts about it here:

encodeURIComponent() works when using Thunderbird, with both MS IE and Firefox. I've been trying to find somethings that work with MS Outlook, but nothing so far.

The document that is being edited and the page that contains FCKeditor embedded has windows-1251 charset.

Make some text selection, go to 'Insert/Edit link' dialog. Than choose 'E-mail' as link type and type sometnihg, let's say in russian in 'Message Subject' or/and 'Message Body' fields.

After the link is created, all non-ASCII charters are replased by

%uxxxx-kind strings, but when clicking the composed link,

'Subject' and 'Body' fragments that are passed into E-mail client are "broken" and look like □41C□430□43C... and so on.

  1. Load sample01.php into IE.
  2. Choose the "Western European" encoding by the View -> Encoding menu.
  3. Change the href attribute of the "FCKeditor" link in the editor window to "mailto:測試@…" (the two characters before @ are Chinese characters)
  4. Press "Submit"

Note in the HTML output, the Chinese characters are turned into "測試", which is not right.

I think the hex encode and decode functions that I wrote and then deleted from the trunk for #268 could be used to get around this problem. Perhaps we should investigate this in 2.6 development?
