FindElement by LinkText is not working on non-latin text

Anonymous created an issue

I have a page like this:

<a href="">тест</a>

And code like

wd.FindElement(selenium.ByPartialLinkText, "тест")

will produce the no such element error. When using latin text everything is working as expected.

    Playing a bit with this example, the Selenium server return 500 on the get element request with a huge Java stack trace. Here's the relevant part (which IMO points to an encoding problem).

                "localizedMessage": "Unable to locate element: {\"method\":\"partial link text\",\"selector\":\"\u00d1\u0082\u00d0\u00b5\u00d1\u0081\u00d1\u0082\"}\nBuild info: version: '2.41.0', revision: '3192d8a', time: '2014-03-27 17:17:32'\nSystem info: host: 'archie.bunker', ip: '', 'Linux', os.arch: 'amd64', os.version: '3.14.4-1-ARCH', java.version: '1.7.0_55'\nDriver info: driver.version: unknown",
