IPTC template Unicode UTF8 Windows and Mac problem

Post by frereroy » Wed Apr 11, 2012 2:00 pm

My question concerns exporting an IPTC/XMP template to be used cross platform both on Windows and Mac.

I am using XnviewMP v 0.39 on both a 32 bit Windows platform and a 64 bit Intel Mac OSX.

In the Edit IPTC/XMP Save template… / Load template...

the IPTC Encoding is set to: "Use UTF-8 to write IPTC" box and the Default IPTC encoding is set to "Locale"

The resulting *.iptc file has, in both versions, the following first line:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!DOCTYPE iptc_template><iptc_template version="1.0"> which seems correct.

but the template does not correctly translate the characters on the "other" platform and when it is checked with a Unicode editor,

SC Unipad - Unicode Text Editor on Win XP and Win 7 and BBedit on OSX Lion, the characters are indeed incorrect.

Does anyone have any suggestions or advice? Thanks in advance.

If ever you need another beta tester - especially for cross platform IPTC/XMP questions you just have to ask.
I have been a long time admirer of the XnView project.

Best wishes/Bon weekend.
