I'm a bit confused! (Not for the first time!) The changes I've  
implemented are working for us: we're editing documents in the WebDAV  
file system using text/HTML editors. As it's not just the meta-data  
that may be changed I assume that we have to upload everything on  
saving. I am however, worried about the fact about possible encoding  
issues similar to what happens if you edit attributes such as  
description in the ZMI rather than in the CMF and use non-ascii get  
problems is this likely to happen here as well?
