           Summary: Not possible to add non-ascii characters in
                    kipi-plugins Byline-field
           Product: digikam
           Version: 1.1.0
          Platform: MS Windows
        OS/Version: MS Windows
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: sleepylion at gmail.com

Version:           1.1.0 (using KDE 4.4.0)
OS:                MS Windows
Installed from:    MS Windows

I'm using Digikam (1.1.0 and Kipi-plugins 1.1.0) to create- and edit image
metadata in my collection of tiff-files. Here in Sweden we have the three
characters Å, Ä and Ö, hence I'm using XMP instead of IPTC when working with my
images. That's because IPTC does not support non-ascii characters.

This often works very well but when trying to use these three characters in the
XMP Edit Metadata-panes "Byline"-field they will not appear. Although, they are
working in the nearby Byline Title-field and in all other fields in the XMP
Edit Metadata-pane. This is a problem because many names (and even the word
"okänd" (unknown)) here in Sweden contains those characters.
