Better support for Unicode characters in EPUB validator
by Liza Daly
We’ve fixed a long-standing limitation in the online EPUB validator that prevented files with non-ASCII characters from being validated. (The bug was actually not in our code but at a lower level; I’ve posted a fix that simply works around it.)
If you had problems before receiving “Site error” when uploading an EPUB with accented characters, you should now be able to validate successfully.
