[Readme] Umlauts are not rendered correctly

German umlauts in the readme file are not rendered correctly even if the readme file is correctly saved as UTF-8 and the browser recognizes the page being UTF-8:

  • ä > ä
  • ö > ö
  • ü > ü
  • ß > ß

Tested with latest releases of Firefox, Chrome, and Edge.

Somewhere there has to be another codepage. You can see a simple readme file here.

If this is renderes correctly at your site, too, we have to take a look at the installation. Do you use Mercurial? Do you have configured the code page for mercurial in the global administration (Administration - Settings - Mercurial)? Does the server have another global code page?
