Swedish character will not print correctly in graph.

  1. Do
    create (n {title:'åäö'}) return n

  2. Check graph
    I get "question mark in tilted black rectangle" (�).

I used the console from a mac with safari.

When running Java apps with Maven on Mac OS X, special characters are broken because the default character set is MacRoman, and the terminal locale settings are not taken into account.

Try starting the Java process with

mvn -DargLine="-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8" clean install exec:java


java -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 ....

The app actually runs on heroku, so it is rather a HTML input/output conversion issue? Probably also related to URL encoding?

This works for me locally after the changes to the input box and syntax highlighting the output box.
