Description Terje Bless 2003-04-19 00:34:01 UTC
Validator should probably use I18N::Charset  or some similar method to enable
support for the character encoding name aliases found in the IANA registration
Comment 1 Terje Bless 2003-05-24 07:47:46 UTC
Targetting 0.7.0.
Comment 2 Terje Bless 2004-09-01 13:05:08 UTC
Hmmm. Or import the database and use the new config facility?

Nominating for 0.7.0, but may have to bump it. Not sure how to deal with it yet.
Comment 3 Bj 2004-09-06 21:15:37 UTC
We would implement this using Encode::Alias I think. Once we use 
Which won't be 0.7.0 as far as I understand.
Comment 4 Terje Bless 2004-09-09 18:25:58 UTC
Actually I think Encode::Alias and I18N::Charset would complement eachother,
but in either case it makes sense to do this when we look at

Since that doesn't look to be for 0.7.0, I'm retargetting this bug.
Comment 5 Olivier Thereaux 2009-02-13 15:13:13 UTC
We've had Encode::Alias functional for a while and there's been no complaint about unrecognized charset aliases. Any specific reason why we should be looking at I18N::Charset too?
