I was trying to cite my source, but I don't think I did it right. Can someone fix it please if not. Lytel 14:31, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

UTF-8 support missing / broken[edit]

As everyone can find out for themselves when opening a UTF-8-encoded file with the latest version of ConTEXT, it does not properly display special characters like umlauts. Therefore, UTF-8 support is not working (even though that is claimed in the program's feature list) and I've removed that part from the WP article. I've tried ConTEXT because I needed UTF-8 support and read about it here. If you check out the forums for ConTEXT at http://forum.contexteditor.org/showthread.php?t=1997 you'll see that various people have experienced the same problem with French and Chinese characters. As somebody writes in the forum: This question used to come up a lot and if I remember Eden's (the original developer) answer correctly (you can search the original forum) there is a component used in ConTEXT that is fundamental and it does not support unicode. --134.130.4.46 (talk) 22:54, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
