      Description

      After getting crazy last days with one Spanish moodler about how his site was showing accents and other chars (only in some places, apparently in a random fashion) I discovered that it had the tidy filter enabled and running.

      So, one simple string like this:

      'áéíóú'

      after being processed by format_text() is showed in browser like:

      áéíóúñÑ
      (enclosed by html <p> tags in source code)

      It seems that tidy breaks things sometimes...

      To reproduce:

      1) Enable tidy filter (ensure you've installed the PHP5 tidy extension (tidy_repair_string).
      2) Copy the attached test.php to your moodle dirrot.
      3) Invoke it from the browser.
