Description Bartosz Malinowski 2006-03-18 19:57:59 UTC
Version:           3.5.1 (using KDE KDE 3.5.1)
Installed from:    Mandriva RPMs
Compiler:          gcc 
OS:                Linux

The non-latin-1 (eg. iso-8859-2) characters in text pasted from Konqueror to Openoffice as html get corrupted. This does not occur if I paste html-formatted text from Firefox.

Hmm, it seems I've screwed up the encoding somewhere.  I'll look into it

Comment 4 John Tapsell 2007-04-07 22:59:07 UTC
After looking at this with SadEagle, we are fairly convinced that this isn't kde's fault.

It does seem that we encode the text as utf8.

I will look into it a bit more, but it does look like this bug will just be closed and marked invalid.

Maksim, I'd better copy this link here too:

It is a bit strange, that without any improvement on the OOffice side, Opera->OOffice fixed itself.

It seems to work fine in 3.5.9 and trunk (r607699) with OpenOffice 2.4.0, but  maybe I'm just lucky.
Comment 8 Maciej Pilichowski 2008-05-16 15:10:18 UTC
Works for me too (KDE3.5.9 + OO2.4.0).
Comment 9 Michael Leupold 2008-05-20 23:18:03 UTC
I can confirm this works in 3.5.9 and trunk r810280 using OpenOffice 2.4. It didn't work in OpenOffice 2.3 so I guess they fixed it on the OO side.
