Placeholder text on Dropin form appears encoded incorrectly

See original GitHub issue

Issue description


I am in the process of migrating from hosted fields to Dropin V3. The only issue I cannot seem to get resolved is the placeholder text appears to have an encoding issue.

Note the placeholder below. It is a similar case on the CVV field.

<input type="tel" autocomplete="off" autocorrect="off" autocapitalize="none" spellcheck="false" class="number" data-braintree-name="number" name="credit-card-number" id="credit-card-number" maxlength="22" placeholder="•••• •••• •••• ••••" aria-invalid="true">

Please let me know if I can provide any other app specific details that might be helpful. Coffeescript:

  braintree.dropin.create {
    authorization: gon.client_token
    container: '#dropin-container'
    locale: 'en_US'
  }, (createErr, instance) ->
    form.addEventListener 'submit', (event) ->
      instance.requestPaymentMethod (err, payload) ->
        if err
          console.log 'Error', err
        # Add the nonce to the form and submit
        document.querySelector('#nonce').value = payload.nonce

I had the same problem when I manually copied the dropin.min.js file and pasted it locally. Calling straight from the cdn or downloading it and saving has fixed the issue originally described for me.

Going to close this, because I think the problem seems to be from the source computer copying the encoding incorrectly. When used from the CDN with the correct character set encoding, it should not display incorrectly.
