    Keyboard input bug with non-english chars

    BeatTorrent

      Hi community, i'm facing a weird problem with the following flex application (something very simple, couldn't be more):

       

       

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <mx:Application xmlns:mx="http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute">
           <mx:TextInput/>
      </mx:Application>
      

       

       

      The bug is coming only on Google Chrome (on Mac), when i try to enter french special chars in the input field, let's say i try to enter the following letters: éèçà, instead i'll get ÈËÁ‡ (see the following screenshots respectively for Safari and Chrome)

      I tried these browsers on Mac: Safari, Firefox, Omniweb, Opera. And it works like a charm for them. The bug is only on Google Chrome Mac.

       

      I also tried on Windows with IE6, IE7, Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome. No bug either for them on Windows.

       

      I've read on the Internet other people on Linux have the same bug sometimes (again, it's just for a couple of browsers and never all the browsers on their platform). I hope I don't have to tell my users to trick with their OS configuration. It's our job to make our apps to fit the visitor, not theirs!

       

      Does anyone knows a workaround for it? A special configuration to do (compatibility mode with older Flash version 8, 9, something like that?)...
