I’ve just updated to 0.11.3 and I came upon this problem.
When using the highlight function in a rails application I sometimes
get the error “Malformed UTF-8 character.”
It is just on certain documents and if I change the excerpt length
the error disappears so it feels that if the highlight method cuts
the text at the wrong character the function returns a string with
This then causes the error when the text is outputted.
Is this a problem with ferret or with rails?
I’m still on 1.1.6 and I haven’t upgraded to rails 1.2 yet so I’m not
using the new multi byte unicode functions.
