jquery-ui datepicker displays wrong characters when document charset is ISO8859-1

$.datepicker.regionalfr? assumes that DOCTYPE CHARSET is UTF8 ....

I use "legacy" database entries that are ISO8859-1 and wrong characters are displayed...

I believe that jquery-ui localised settings should not be charset dependant.

I have modified the settings replacing accent characters with there html entities and it works fine...

(i.e "é" is replaced by "é" )

could you integrate the changes for the next release?

$.datepicker.regionalfr? = {

closeText: 'Fermer', prevText: 'Pr&eacute;c&eacute;dent', nextText: 'Suivant', currentText: 'Aujourd\'hui',

monthNames: ['Janvier','F&eacute;vrier','Mars','Avril','Mai','Juin',


monthNamesShort: ['Janv.','F&eacute;vr.','Mars','Avril','Mai','Juin',


dayNames: ['Dimanche','Lundi','Mardi','Mercredi','Jeudi','Vendredi','Samedi'], dayNamesShort: ['Dim.','Lun.','Mar.','Mer.','Jeu.','Ven.','Sam.'], dayNamesMin: ['D','L','M','M','J','V','S'], weekHeader: 'Sem.', dateFormat: 'dd/mm/yy', firstDay: 1, isRTL: false, showMonthAfterYear: false, yearSuffix: };



BTW, all regional settings of all widgets should be html coded...

It's much more sane to use UTF-8. We intentionally removed all HTML encoding. If you want your page to render with ISO8859-1, you can probably just set the encoding on the JS files.
