While {Site}{CharSet} defaults to undef in Foswiki.spec, it is always set to a defined value in the session constructor thus finally defaulting to iso-8859-1.

There are several problems here:

  • excessive testing of {Site}{CharSet} being defined in various places of the code
  • breakage of Request/Response encapsulation by direct use of CGI::charset()
  • Foswiki::Response not defaulting to {Site}{CharSet} in its constructor

Also: testing {Locale} is misused as a check for unicodeness in various places, foremost the session constructor but also in CompareRevisionsAddOn.

Michael, what's the status on this. There are lots of checkins, was it fixed?
