Description Nicole C. Engard 2011-06-29 16:40:36 UTC
Copying and pasting the degree symbol into the abstract field seems to cause the following error in IE, but not in FF.

Software error:
Can't call method "fields" on an undefined value at
/home/koha/kohaclone/C4/Biblio.pm line 2101.
Comment 1 Owen Leonard 2011-07-07 13:38:14 UTC
I couldn't reproduce this in IE8 on Windows 7. I added a degree symbol (Unicode character U+00B0, Windows keystroke Alt+0176) to 5xx fields and was able to save the record without error.

This could be an issue with Unicode normalization... NFC v. NFD...
Comment 3 wajasu 2012-09-10 21:28:56 UTC
I did the same as Owen and no problems saving.  Maybe some NFC work done after 2012-06-29 has fixed it.   I Used IE 8 on Win7.

Two attempts to reproduce this bug failed. I'm going to consider this fixed. Please re-open if you can provide more details about how to reproduce.
