Insert/edit link replaces Norwegian characters with HTML entities

Enonic version: 6.3.0

In a HtmlArea, select a word with Norwegian characters and klick “insert/edit link”. The “Text”-field will replace the Norwegian characters with HTML entities representing said characters.

Trøndelag -> Trøndelag

When saving the link, the text in the HtmlArea now displays the escaped characters instead.

Immediately sounds like a bug… We have to look into it.

I’ve had this reported in too. Didn’t manage to verify it, but I typed the åæø text only in the “popup” (didn’t select any text beforehand). So looks like a missing un-escape on the selected text before being sent to the “popup” dialog.

I can verify that fixing the escaped text in the popup “fixes” the problem.
