Re: Marshalling/Serialization Gtk::TextBuffer


there is no easy way of doing it. Last time I looked at
something similar, I think I saw some stuff in heavymole
( or maybe somewhere else.

Instead, I use Gtk::Label - it supports Pango text attribute
markup language:

label.set_use_markup ();
label.set_line_wrap ();

Glib::ustring s ("your utf-8 string here");

label.set_markup (s);

If you use libxml2 (or better libxml++), you can save/load utf-8 strings
just fine. I do it in my app, Granule, all the time. But make sure you 
install libxml++-2.6 or higher, not libxml++-1.0.

For example, see

search for "back_example" string.

hope this helps,
