Preformatted label with special characters


So, as the topic states…

I am essentially building a comments UI panel; simple textarea for input with the message being displayed as a preformatted label.

All is swell except for the display of certain special characters. Please see attached image.

Can someone enlighten me as to the cause?


Hi Joel,

Vaadin uses UTF-8 consistently, so I’d check whether the strings containing special chars are also valid UTF-8 or something else.
