#188 closed Enhancement (Fixed)

Colloquy should automatically detect encoding of incoming messages (utf8)

Reported by: fs@… Owned by: timothy
Component: Chat Core (IRC) Version: 2.2 (Mac)
Severity: Normal Keywords: utf8 encoding detection

Description

Colloquy should try to automatically detect the encoding of messages, as far as it is possible. Konversation does something like this and at least tries to recognize utf8 and iso8859-1/15. You can find hints about the implementation at http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/modules/rdf/src/utils.c#540 and in the Konversation source (unicode.cpp and guess_ja.cpp).

We don't auto detect ISO encodings. But we should detect UTF8. Thanks for the link.
