|Bugzilla bugs with non-ascii characters - encoding problem? [message #50892]

When I view a Bugzilla bug with Mylyn 3.0, all occurances of non-ascii
characters (in my case the Norwegian characters æ, ø and å), appear
(I assume/hope that everyone who reads this e-mail will do so via a
piece of software that employs the correct encoding, and therefore my
examples here will make sense)
For example, the Mylyn task editor displays the following:
"VedrÃ¸rende separate rapporter:
Er det ok at vi i fÃ¸rste omgang deler den opp ved Ã¥ ta sideskift
fÃ¸r neste kontonr?"
The original (correct) text is:
"Vedrørende separate rapporter:
Er det ok at vi i første omgang deler den opp ved å ta sideskift før
Clearly there is an encoding problem somewhere. Although the garbled
version is displayed in the Mylyn task editor, the *correct* text is
displayed when the same bug is displayed by the internal Eclipse web
So Eclipse's internal web browser does not have a problem with the
encoding - only the Mylyn task editor does.
Assuming that this is an ecoding problem, where can the correct encoding
be specified so that the correct text is displayed? I am using Mylyn to
handle customer submitted bugs and the current situation does not look
I understand the concept of encodings, but it is often confusing to
determine exactly where the wrong encoding is being used, and sometimes
even more difficult to determine how to correct it.
I would greatly appreciate some help here.
