Characters not shown in internal editor
after importing our website from local folder, I noticed that several characters were missing. It is a german site and there are a lot of äöü characters (ä ö ü )
If you open the html-file with the internal editor - the character is missing - not converted - even in the html-view it is missing.
If you open it with the external editor - no problem.
If you manually insert the character with the internal editor - no problem.
I saw your kb entry for unicode and understand what I have to to with new files - but this will not help after an import.

I suspect the problem is that the original encoding was not UTF-8.
If you have some way to convert from the original encoding to UTF-8 before importing to CityDesk, that would solve it.
Another solution would be to cut and paste the text itself from a web browser into CityDesk, and Windows will handle the conversion automatically.
This is something we're working hard on improving!
