When Utf8 Support is checked for replace filters, Unicode characters in the
search for and replace with fields are now correctly converted to UTF-8 prior
to being processed by the PCRE engine.
It's evident that this new aspect of UT-8 support appertains only to the Replace filter, but not to the Replace list filter.Fixed UTF-8 mode perl pattern replace strings from being converted to utf-8.
I can paste UTF-8 characters into both search and replace fields for a Perl Replace filter, with UTF-8 support already ticked, and they display as pasted.
Yet when I paste the same characters into a Perl Replace List filter, with UTF-8 support already ticked, accented characters are stripped of their accents and/or the Unicode characters are converted to a question mark.
Please explain the design philosophy for this difference.
