No, I don't think so. UTF-8 is the default for vCard 3.0 and iCalendar
2.0, regardless of what the encapsulating XML says.
Can you reduce it to a simpler combination of syncs, say, add special
character in FB, send to server, then to phone?
Check at each step that the data was transfered okay. The data stored by
the file backend uses UTF-8.
Regarding the duplicates, does that occur during a normal two-way sync?
If in doubt, identify one sync which shouldn't create duplicates but
does and post the server-side sync log, either publicly or to me
2. Thunderbird does not support all the address book fields I use on
my phone (such as multiple number fields and additional email address
fields). I was expecting some inconsistencies in this area from
synching to Google via a TB extension (I might adopt a SyncML approach
now if I can get it working).
Unfortunately there isn't much that can be done about this. Picking the
subset of the data which is supported by all devices typically works
3. In todo's on the phone, the text within an item appears to
duplicated. It seems both the description and summary are being
displayed (their content is the same in the vcal file).
A log would be useful.
