[Bug] Foreign/UTF8 characters are not displayed correctly

Some foreign characters in NFT attributes are not displayed properly in the wallet. For example :

Musée du Louvre

On their side, Mintgarden and Spacescan show them properly

If you send me your xch address, I’ll give you one 👍

Thanks for uncovering this interesting edge case. Long story short, because the metadata URL response for these arweave URLs returns a 302 redirect status code, a long-standing Electron net.request bug omits the content-type header from the response object. So by default the charset is interpreted as iso-8859-1 (I believe).

I have a workaround fix that works. Longer-term, there will be some upcoming changes that should further change how we fetch metadata.

Thank you, I sent you another one! Any chance the fix is included in 1.5.1?

Yeah, we’ll get it in. Thanks for reporting it!
