CSV encoding should be UTF-8 in French locale
|Assignee:||Jean-Philippe Lang||% Done:|
Default csv encoding is currently set to ISO-8859-1 in the French localization file. That's probably why the generated csv files do not show accented characters properly.
Don't you think the general_csv_encoding variable should be set to UTF-8 in locales/fr.yml?

Jean-Philippe, what do you think about this?
Although I cannot judge whether this patch should be merged or not because I am not a French speaker, I am setting target version to 3.3.0 to request you to make a decision.

As far as I can tell, french spreadcheets like Excel and Calc don't use UTF-8 as default when opening a CSV file.
Thanks anyway for your feedback.
(#27213) What about the € symbol? I guess it is quite commonly used in Europe, although ISO-8859-1 does not includes this symbol... I am considering switching the CSV encoding to UTF-8 instead
