First, thank you guys for this framework and congratulations for the great work.
So, my request: Encode the framework files and the generated ones in UTF8, please. Yii already supports i18n, but using ASCII this support is not complete, because special chars have to be encoded, escaped, and it’s a pain in the ass. [I'm brazilian, and we use a lot of 'ã', 'ç' and 'é' here =)]
I have not hacked the core yet [hope I have time do to it soon] but I think it's not a very complex task, and surely it's a very useful and valuable one.
Oh, sorry. In my machine, every file is encoded as ASCII. The ones under /framework, the ones generated by the crud, everything. I had to manually convert then in order to get my special chars working. The problem should be in the download. =(
Sorry for bothering. I will download again and investigate why this happened.
I think this is probably related with your editor's setting. Maybe it's opening a file by default in ASCII? Anyway, other than those i18n data and translated files, the core source files do not really have encoding problem because there are no non-English characters.
