Created attachment 10282 [details]
text to reproduce error

Entering text with invalid characters causes Koha to return a 500 Internal Server Error in when submit is pressed. The bib record is NOT created. I am attaching a document here with text (see the English abstract) that causes this to happen. This occurs in both 3.6 and 3.8 in IE8.

Does anyone know if this bug is still valid, and if so how to reproduce it? I'm not exactly sure what kind of "invalid" characters we're supposed to be finding in the attached PDF. Are non-ascii characters considered "invalid?"

FWIW I have no problem entering bibliographic data in cataloging whether it be in Firefox or Internet Explorer 11.

Should be fixed, please reopen if I am wrong.
