This question about Configuration, Using an extension: Answered

Is there a list of illegal characters?

A long dash in an excel attachment, such as –, will cause excel2table to fail to render the topic, giving instead the error:
Foswiki detected an internal error - please check your Foswiki logs and webserver logs for more information.

Wide character in memGzip

Smart quotes and ellipsis (...) are also illegal.

This also happens in the last version (1.1.5), when using utf8 and the http compression is enabled.

To repeat it, see the topic history in a foswiki installation with locale support enabled, and compare revisions. Foswiki creashes with the same error message.

Also, there is a comment from MichaelDaum in http://trac.foswiki.org/changeset/4065 about not supporting wide characters in render.pm

As workaround, go to Configure>Tuning and disable Http compression.

Another work-around is disabling UseLocale. This is pretty buggy in Foswiki anyway and it is actually strongly recommended to switch off UseLocale.
