When creating an anchor link in a knowledge article containing accented characters, for example "Pièces Requises", the system will appear to take the value. Upon saving though the "target" attribute when viewing the source will containg _blank rather than the correct code.
1. Create a draft article with rich text area field.
2. Create an Anchor and give name as "Pièces Requises", you will see a red flag which is the anchor label.
3. Click Save.
4. Click "source" from rich text tool bar, there is no anchor link available.
5. Click "source" from RTA tool bar again, this is no red flag shown on the link anymore.
6. You need to manual add " <a id="Pièces Requises" name="Pièces Requises">" to get the anchor show from source, click save
7. click "source" the fouth time, you get <a id="Pièces Requises" name="" target="_blank">
Editing the source manually sometimes works but, not in all cases.
As of Winter 16 release we have updated the Anchor plugin to HTML 4.0 specifications.
Anchor must begin with a letter ([A-Za-z]) and may be followed by any number of letters, digits ([0-9]), hyphens ("-"), underscores ("_"), colons (":"), and periods (".")
Therefore, accented characters and Asian characters are no longer allowed.
