Can we please have some standardisation (irony: not standardization) around Web 2.0 encodings? The following failed silently causing an unrelated URLConnection not to send from the main thread with the session terminating unexpectedly (2021r1.1):
WebPage1.Link1.URL = WebPage2.TextField1.Text
It took me two hours to find this unrelated silent bug which required:
WebPage1.Link1.URL = WebPage2.TextField1.Text.DefineEncoding(Encodings.UTF8)
Could we please please please have all undefined encodings - even those internal to Xojo such as this - be defined UTF8 by default? All this undefined stuff while being non-committal is technically correct I suppose, yet makes our code unsafe and very expensive to stablilize (irony: not stabilise).
