Instead it emits an escaped version of the character, which is unreadable in other browsers, such as Safari Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open seamonkey composer 2. Create a document with text containing e-acute (e.g. dét) 3. Save file and open it in Safari (or view the source), The proper é is not there. Actual Results: Wrong text is emitted Expected Results: HTML containing é is expected
Could you post the source-code that you are getting from SM? Is it trying to use UTF-8 or something like that?
Created attachment 240726 [details] Source code emitted from composer It looks like it is using UTF-8. The accented character is 2 bytes long. Note that this is not only a problem for e-acute, danish characters (æ ø å) do not emit correctly either (having the same symptoms).

So the question is why is Composer outputting UTF-8 characters in the wrong charset (in this case ISO-8859-1) rather than escaping them. This looks to me similar to bug 195420, so I will dupe to that bug. Reporter, if you don't agree with me please reopen this bug. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 195420 ***
