#436 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Do we really need the xmlrpc filtering of htmlentities and tags?

Description

The filtering of htmlentities and tags is only needed if the site is running php 5.2.6 and has the goofy libxml2 compiled in. Do we really need the filtering? It's trashing international charsets.

See forum thread: http://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=938

He's not having problems with the topic title because we're not filtering that. The filter should work because we're using UTF-8 and I don't see how the other filters are touching it.

I've lost track of where I found this item about 5.2.6 and libxml2.

OK here we go. I found the discussion I was looking for on this problem.

This is your call Andy. We got a guy who deserves an answer. He's been more than patient and helpful in all this.

I'm leaving this in, but we can provide instructions to comment out the filters if people are having problems. Having the forms not work, verses a few international characters not working is worse in my opinion.
