Unicode characters in shows
It came to light during the month that shows with Unicode characters in their title, summary or notes were not being represented properly on the website.
This is the definition of Unicode on Wikipedia:
Unicode, formally The Unicode Standard, is an information technology standard for the consistent encoding, representation, and handling of text expressed in most of the world's writing systems. The standard, which is maintained by the Unicode Consortium, defines as of the current version (15.0) 149,186 characters covering 161 modern and historic scripts, as well as symbols, thousands of emoji (including in colors), and non-visual control and formatting codes.
The software and database behind the HPR website come from a time before Unicode, but had been updated to use this encoding a number of years ago. However, it was discovered that some changes had been overlooked.
We are currently making changes to ensure that Unicode is properly displayed on the web site, and in audio tags. It will be necessary to find and correct encoding errors in the database, and this process will be carried out as soon as possible. ✓
