Web contacts doesn't handle Norwegian characters æ, ø and å correctly

If I add a new web contact information to a person, i.e. facebook page address; and use æ, ø or å in the contact name field, these characters are displayed a some other characters the next time I open the web contact window.

Confirmed.

The letter 'ø' will as example become 'ø' in my case.

I had to restart FTB to reproduce though, close and open the person card window was not enough.

Hi J.M and Njål,

Thank you so much for reporting this issue for us as we were not aware of this problem.

We have noted it in our system and our developers should work on fixing it, however it may take some time.

We apologize for the great inconvenience.

Although not related to the reported problem, it might be an idea to check the problem with https-address at the same time.

Just to clarify: it is not possible to use any link starting with https:// 

As example, pictures in galleries at Google picasa web site are using the https-protocol. I assume many are using it, and especially when it comes to sources/citations it would be nice if links worked from within FTB.

Let me know if any further explanation is needed.
