Item7857: TOC odd behavior with headers containing "!"

Since the upgrade to 6.1.0 our users are reporting strange behaviors for some pages that use TOC.

The users are including a "!!" to exclude headers from the TOC. This works.

If a header contains a Wikiword the user adds a "!" in order to disable the Wikiord. In these cases the link to the header from the TOC fails.

In tests if I replace "!" with "NOP" then I see the expected behaviour.

Using the "!" worked in 6.0.2.

Thanks for your feedback.

Update: This was linked with the config setting $TWiki::cfg{Site}{CharSet} and non-wikiword topics.

If a topic exists with the name ABC and this is referred to in the a header of another topic then the header line is messed up

The 6.1.0 version sets $TWiki::cfg{Site}{CharSet} to en_US.ISO-8859-1

Putting this back to iso-8859-1 has cleared the problem.
