Edward Mokurai Cherlin commented on SQ-158:

The clipboard always used to show a line of empty boxes when text was copied from a source outside Etoys, even from ASCII. Fixed in Etoys 5.0 for ASCII and Latin-1 (8859-1), not for Japanese or Cyrillic, which show as question marks in clipboard (an improvement over empty boxes). Still cannot paste Japanese or Cyrillic into a workspace. I have filed a separate bug, SQ-1121, for a wide range of Unicode failings.

> (bert) I can copy text in Russian or Japanese (for instance, from wikipedia) into Squeak, and it displays perfectly. I can copy the 'gibberish' that I typed and showed in the screenshot in my previous email into other programs, and it displays correctly in the other programs. However, if I try to copy correctly-display Japanese or Russian from Squeak into other programs, it simply doesn't work: the clipboard seems to be empty, and nothing is pasted when I click 'paste'.
> (takashi) I thought I once have reproduced this bug. But it works perfectly today... It would be helpful if someone find how to reproduce the bug.
