Scrrenshot of Thunderbird subject when running xdg-email --utf8 --subject "Hällö"
Creating a mail with Thunderbird using
xdg-email --subject "Hällö"
xdg-email --utf8 --subject "Hällö"
gives a subject of
(see attached picture).
I would expect the Subject to be "Hällö".
- Thunderbird 38.3.0
- de_DE.UTF-8 (any other UTF-8 locale should do)
Tried to reproduce this but it's working correctly. Can you still reproduce this?

Screenshot as of 2018-06-20
As of 2018-06-20 the behaviour as changed but is still wrong for both with and without `--utf-8`. See new screenshot. It looks like xdg-open passes a latin-1 character code.
* xdg-utils 1.1.3
* thunderbird 52.8.0
- menu: view -> text encoding: "unicode"
- preferences: Display -> Formatting -> Fints & Colors -> Advanced
-> Text Encoding -> Outgoing: Unicode (UTF-8)
* system's locale is set to UTF-8
