Problem Description
Since the latest updates, there is a problem with utf-8 chars like the Copyright symbol "©".
Construct 2 export a data.js file. This is a new feature and I think this makes some problems.

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  • Just create a project with a text object.
  • Set the text property to "© Copyright 2014 xxx"
  • Export to ejecta and run on iphone.

Observed Result
On device the text looks like: "© Copyright 2014 ..."

Expected Result
With out the first letter "Â". (wrong encoding)

Affected Browsers
Only with ejecta. On desktop there are no problems.

Closing as won't fix: we just deprecated support for Ejecta, in part because of all the bugs (like this) that we end up dealing with because it's not a real browser engine.

If you still want to see it fixed, consider filing the bug directly with the Ejecta project.
