ok, i dont know if its actually a bug, but anyway: im using irssi with an ascii script ( that allows me to send colored text. if i do so in a bilbee/jabber conversation, the connection gets lost (didnt try it with other protokolls, but i asume its the same).

Oops, I'm sorry for the late reaction. :-)

Yes, this *is* specific to Jabber, and it's actually the Jabber server disconnecting from BitlBee because it doesn't like the characters you're sending. I'm not sure if this is a BitlBee bug or not. BitlBee could just strip them, but not sending that kind of stuff sounds like a solution to me too. ;-)

Other IM protocols don't mind the characters and just pass them through.

Ok, so it is a jabber server doing stupid things, as usual.

Could it be possible to strip these characters, maybe not by default but available as an option?

This is really annoying on jabberd 1.4 :\

It would be nice to translate this to xhtml ( ) so everybody could benefit from color.
