Checknox field now showing at all if label not in English (3 posts)

    If my checkbox label text is in Hebrew, so the checkbox fields does not show at all.
    If I look in the view source, I see an empty paragraph instead of the checkbox -

    In former versions of WP and CF7, I had no such an issue. How can this be fixed in the current version?

    Well, I researched that a bit and it appears it is not a problem in all Hebrew characters.
    This happens only if the checkbox value contains also an Hebrew letter named "Nun" (Ascii value of 'Nun' is 144, and its HTML entity is נ
    &#1504 ; (I added a space before the last ; since if not it converted to the character and you won't see the entity pre-decoding)

    The problem with "nun" character was once ago in WP 2.9 or 2.8 and it was fixed. Now I don't have any other problems with "num" in WP, only in CF7 inside a checkbox value, so it might be with the way CF7 formats the value of it.

    Hope it will help plugin's developer to find the solution for this issue.

    It might be something with WP filtering mechanism also, opened a trac ticket to check this http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/16765
