Incorrect encoding for Description field

When clicking on "List Managed System" link and viewing the list of guest system the Description with cyrillic content looks just ok like, for example: CentOS Linux Virtualmin (5) Тот самый сервер с неправильным тэгом в дата-центре

However, if I click on that server the same field shows:

Тот самый сервер с неправильным тэгом в дата-центре

Request to make this field (and for that matter all other fields) to correctly work with non-English alphabets (UTF-8?).



Which language do you have selected for the UI in Virtualmin, and with which character set? If it isn't UTF-8, then these kinds of incorrect encodings could happen..

It is English. And I never changed character set. Everything is default. However, in nowadays applications with UI it is possible to use English with correctly displayed characters in other languages, so I thought *min family should also follow this path.

Yes, Webmin/Virtualmin should handle this .. and in a test on my system, it works just fine.

Make sure that at Webmin -> Webmin Configuration -> Language that you have EN.UTF-8 selected as the language.

It was set to just EN, not EN.UTF-8 by default, however even after switching to EN.UTF-8, restarting Webmin it is showing gibberish characters in "Description or comment" on "Edit System" window:

Тот самый сервер с неправильным тэгом в дата-центре

Please note that on "List Managed Systems" the same field is displayed correctly:

Тот самый сервер с неправильным тэгом в дата-центре

and I am afraid when clicking on "View Frame Source" of the right frame it doesn't show any encoding set in the headers:

<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
<link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' href='/unauthenticated/reset-fonts-grids-base.css'>
<link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' href='/unauthenticated/virtual-server-style.css' />
<!--[if IE]>
<style type="text/css">
table.formsection, table.ui_table, table.loginform { border-collapse: collapse; }
var rowsel = new Array();
<script type='text/javascript' src='/unauthenticated/sorttable.js'></script>
<style type="text/css">
textarea,pre { font-size:120%; }
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; Charset=UTF-8">
<title>Edit System</title>
<script type='text/javascript'>
window.defaultStatus="root logged into Webmin 1.710 on (CentOS Linux 6.6)";

Which browser and version are you running there, and on which operating system?
