      Description

      When displaying a license text in XMLUI the scandinavian characters break causing ? to be shown wherever accented characters are present, or alternately displaying an error "Error unable to parse: Error on line 1: Invalid byte 2 of 3-byte UTF-8 sequence."(followed by an unformatted dump of license text) in the license text display.

      The same breakage of accented characters occurs when XMLUI displays HTML formatted text in the community/collection metadata fields. If no HTML formatting is used in a field, the characters come up ok.

      Finally, when creating user groups with scandinavian characters in their names, the characters break on display, showing the UTF-8 unknown character mark in place of accent
