I create new text file in openoffice-writer, write some
russian text and save file at RTF format. After opening this file
I see wrong encoding for russian text. The encoding looks like
win1251 (windows cyrillic).
Workaround: save blank file at RTF format and close it.
After reopenning it, one can do the russian stuff: typing, saving,
closing, reopenning. All is fine.
Neither Linux, nor Windows version does not have this bug.
OpenOffice originally saves text at unicode format, but in FreeBSD
port there is a patch called patch-wrtrtf. The patch leads to
saving file at non-unicode format. Probably, the patch do the
right thing after opening existing file. But saving new file
at RTF format is invalid.
The same results are in OpenOffice-1.1.0 (english),
1.1.1.RC3 (english), 1.1.1.RC1 (russian, installed from
Locale is ru_RU.KOI8-R.
Open new file in openoffice-writer.
Type some russian text.
Save file in RTF format.
Open this file.
See wrong encoding.
Assign to openoffice team
remove CJK-rtf patches.
