hey,

First I just wanted to thank everyone involved in creating orgmode,
it's amazing and it has pretty much sold me on emacs. But, I've had
some problems with links containing æøå. I'm an osx (lion) user. In
emacs 23.4 (9.0) no paths with æøå where possible to open. For
example, these did not work:

file:~/dør.txt (didn't open)
http://www.dører.no (the url bar of firefox contained www.d¯rer.no
and, before that, some other strange formatting)
file:~/dør

The links above did work for urls with an o instead of an ø. The
problem has been partially solved. I got a pretest version of emacs 24
(later I updated orgmode with package.el, but this did not seem to
make a difference) and now the txt and url does work but the folder
still does not. All links still work with an o in place of the ø's.
The folder can be opened in dired. (Yes, I should learn how to use
dired, but just emacs plus org is enough for now.) I hope there's some
solution to this.

ps. it seems like chinese characters don't work either

file:~/黄立行超新星.txt (does open)
file:~/黄立行超新星 (only opens in dired)

I can't reproduce this problem on my GNU/Linux machine but hopefully 
someone using MacOSX will help.

Hi,

I cannot reproduce AJR's problem (and I'm a happy user of both æøå and 
other strange characters on the Mac). I created a dør.txt file and 
opened it with a file:~/org/dør.txt link. I clicked a 
http://www.dører.no link and got the appropriate URL in the Firefox 
address bar.

I'm on Emacs 23.3.1 and OS X 10.6.8, with current-language-environment 
always set to "UTF-8".

AJR, do you only have this trouble with links, or do you experience 
other encoding issues as well?

Yours,
Christian

Embarrassingly, I put my response in the wrong place, I've never used a mailing list before. Anyway, for future reference, here's my response:

Solved! (By setting current-language-environment to utf-8, it was set to english-something by default) I have no idea why I didn't check what encoding emacs was using by default right away.  I had no encoding problems until this issue surfaced. Thank you!
