Description: ------------ htmlspecialchars() (in the Xhtml renderer) can raise warnings if used with an unsupported charset and should be silenced.

The same applies to htmlentities() too, of course.

Jan, would it not be wise to let the errors occur so that users know why the translation isn't working?

No, because if the specified charset doesn't work, html...() is smart enough to fall back to us-ascii, which is always better than no escaping at all. The end user (who is the one who will see the notice in the end) doesn't know anything to do with message anyway. And the supported charsets change from time to time, so you can't check for the charset before using these functions either.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up at the end of next Sunday (CET) on In case this was a website problem, the change will show up on the website in short time. Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PEAR better. Good enough for me, Jan; it's fixed in CVS. Thanks. :-)
