The import of the utf8 coded bookmarks of Opera browser version 6.x
doesn't work properly. Import of german "Umlauts" results in
garbled text and duplicate bookmarks on subsequent
imports.

    Please tell me how I can submit a file without creating a new bug
    entry.

    Well, I am now logged in but do not see any possibility to attach a file to this
    reply. Only in the form to report a new bug there is an input field to attach a
    file.

    I don't know, why this is not possible. Maybe only for project admins... Anyway, please mail me the file at www@patrice.ch, this will be the easiest thing to do.

    Thank you!

    Update: I have tried to do this, but currently did not
    achieve this. I'll try to realize the UTF8 algorithm with
    Visual Basic again.

    I like your programm and would be glad if it worked with Opera. So to
    support your effort and to contribute to the success of the program
    without being able to program by myself, I would buy the book for you.
    Please give me your address so I can order it at bol and let it send to you.

    I now convert all all characters that fit into 8 bytes. The
    other characters are replaced with a question mark. I hope
    this is fine for you all. Please tell me if it works.

    I have activated this conversion for Netscape and Opera
    import. I think Internet Explorer doesn't store it's
    bookmarks as UTF8.
