Package: xserver-xorg-input-all
Severity: normal

Hash: SHA1


I'm not sure which package should I choose for this particular problem
cause I'm not aware of internal mechanismes in X.org.

Please forward/reassign this bugreport to the correct place if this is
wrong one.

The problem is when I try to mark some text (in Firefox for example) and it
contains some characters like apostrophe wrote using entities like &rsquo;.

X clipboard seems to have problems with such characters and it's not
possible to paste marked text to the other application like xterm.

I suppose it's problem with UTF handling, but it's not possible to paste
even broken text without that >8 bit characters. Middle mouse button
doesn't paste anything. Maybe it should simply strip >8 bits characters and
paste only these that are correct for 8bit encoding.


Version: GnuPG v1.4.3 (GNU/Linux)

I did some testing about this bug with a page containing &rsquo;aaaa
(with iso8859-1 encoding). I didn't notice any difference when copying
from Epiphany instead of Firefox. But I see some difference when not
pasting in the same application:
    xterm: almost OK (&rsquo; changed into a regular quote)
    gnome-terminal with ISO encoding: paste nothing
    gnome-terminal with UTF8 encoding: OK
    rxvt: paste ?aaaa
    urxvt: paste ?aaaa
    emacs: \u2019aaaa

So, if there is a bug, it does not seem to be about Xorg. And I don't
know where to reassign. So, I am closing this bug for now. Feel free to
reopen/reassign or open a new wishlist against any terminal that you
think should take care of removing/replacing these non-8bits char.
