It seems to me that wkhtmltopdf v0.13-alpha is not properly displaying images in PDF documents if umlauts are contained in src-attribute of an image. I tried both with unencoded urls as well with encoded urls. Is this a known issue and is there any known workaround? Thanks for your help in advance.
Is it only image src attributes, or do other file names written in non-ASCII (accented) text also fail? This could give a clue whether it's a general filename handling problem with accented characters, or that it is isolated to one or two special cases.
Of course, you've checked that you didn't write the file names in, say, Latin-1 while running wkHTMLtoPDF in UTF-8, or vice-versa. That would certainly cause problems with being unable to find files. I take it that your operating system handles such file names OK.
Thanks a lot for the immediate response. With your comment I was able to narrow down the problem I was encountered.
For my application, however, the described workaround works for me.
Hmm. Maybe you found that local files are handled with different encoding than URLs. The bottom line is that whenever you use a character which is not straight ASCII (unaccented Latin alphabet), you have to be aware of what character encoding you're using, and what the system is expecting.
