Wikimedia-RU mailing list page has wrong encoding
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Like T111457

This is because the description is in Russian, and it's probably not Unicode and Mailman is not configured to send the correct encoding header.

It can be fixed manually by the reader using browsers' encoding settings, and it was quite common to do such things in the 1990s, but these days best practices in web development have ways to avoid this weird step. It would be nice if our Mailman could be configured to fix it.

@Dzahn I replaced the text. But this is just one of many messages.

Web interface for reading mails. E. g. we take the letter with Cyrillic letters in URL: — you can see that the link "Цели_и_задачи_Викиновостей" gets broken encoding when clicked in browser (but is correctly displayed to reader!).
