:external-format :utf-8 not respected
When starting aserve with (gwl:start-gwl), with current feature/zacl branch of gendl, it will specify :external-format :utf-8 for CCL (the external-format name needs to be made portable, but that's another issue).
You can also manually start aserve with :external-format :utf-8 just to be sure and to make a small self-contained example:
(net.aserve:start :port 9005 :external-format :utf-8)
Now try the following publish command (and note the :external-format in the with-http-body should not be necessary, if the server was started with the correct :external-format):
(in-package :gwl) (publish :path "/utf8-try" :function #'(lambda(req ent) (with-http-response (req ent :content-type "text/html; charset=utf-8") (with-http-body (req ent :external-format :utf-8) (format *html-stream* "Hey €¥© Now") ;;(format *html-stream* "Hey Now") ))))
When visiting http://localhost:9005/utf8-try you will see error
