When i connect to server with UTF-8 all messages is visible, but topic text in mIRC caption is unreadable.

Thanks for the bug report - I tried to reproduce this issue in mIRC v6.35 by connecting to the IRC server and joining the same channel - however mIRC displayed the text correctly in the titlebar. Are you using any addons or scripts that might be interfering with the way mIRC updates the titlebar?

No, just use popular pIRC script for MIRC - that is a pack of same action commands in user like menu and other like this.

But this bug does not appear anywhere - somewhere topic text is normal, somewhere is unreadable utf in cp1251 =)

Try without that script (and any others). Even if you don't think it will affect the topic, it still might. If you try without it, you can say for certain if it's a script or mIRC problem.

I can confirm this bug. It disappears if you type /topic in the channel.

Note that you cannot mix utf-8 with non utf-8 text in the titlebar

For instance if your script did a /titlebar $chr(160) it will disable utf-8 from being rendered.

Also realize that in 6.35, mIRC will disable aero if it tries to render unicode in the titlebar, so that may not be something you'd want to even do.

Whoa... why does that happen? Is that behaviour necessary?

No, it's a bug, searching "unicode aero" should tell you more. I'm sure it will be fixed in the next version, but it's present in 6.35. In fact, I use /titlebar $chr(160) as a workaround to keep mIRC from trying to render unicode in my titlebar-- this keeps Aero working properly.
