who are working with Smarty Templates or something like that. Thanks to Timothy
Many people have had problems with international characters over
PHP. I had also the same problem. PHP have strange problems
with character encoding. The code hasn't been changed but just saved again with
Western European encoding. Now it works well in my system.
Take a look also at the "default_charset" configuration option at the php.ini
file. It doesn't seem to be an editor's problem but a PHP issue.

" that are automatically added by PHP on form posts.

The Table dialog box
now handles the Style width and height set in the table (Thanks to Roberto
Arruda). There where many problems on prior version when people changed
manually the table's size, dragging the size handles, and then it was not
possible to set a new size using the table dialog box.

No image is shown in the preview pane if no image has been set.

The "Multi Language" system is now available. This version
ships with English and Italian versions completed. Other languages will be
available soon. The editor automatically detects the client language and sets
all labels, tooltips and dialog boxes to it, if available. The auto detection
and the default language can be set in the fck_config.file.
Two files can now be created to isolate customizations code from the original
source code of the editor: fckeditor.config.js and fckeditor.custom.js.
Create these files in the root folder of your web site, if needed. The first
one can be used to add or override configurations set on fck_config.js. The
second one is used for custom actions and behaviors.
A problem with relative links and images like "/test/test.doc" has been solved.
In prior versions, only with XHTML support enabled, the URL was changed to
something like "http://www.mysite.xxx/test/test.doc" (The domain was
automatically added). Now the XHTML cleaning procedure gets the URLs exactly
how they are defined in the editors HTML.

[SF BUG-726137] On version 0.9.5, some commands (special chars, image,
