No named entity generated for HTML mail send
Used 1999-05-17-09-M6 build. Ender does not generate named entities for HTML mail. For example, messenger is getting á instead of á
Accepted bug, changed milestone to M7
Assigning all kostello bugs to akkana
nsHTMLContentSinkStream used to have a routine called UnicodeToEntity, which was called by nsHTMLContentSinkStream::UnicodeToHTMLString. That was replaced in version 3.33 when EncodeToBuffer (which doesn't do the same thing) was added. I'm still trying to track down why UnicodeToEntity was removed then, and if this code was expected to live in the unicode encoder (which isn't always initialized). This bug is at risk of slipping to M8 since it looks like there's a tangled web of dependencies that no one person really understands.

Fixed -- the entities should show up now.
** Checked with 6/18/99 Win32 build ** I have checked a number of key characters in Latin 1 8-bit range and they are now all going out in HTML entities in body. This is the desired result. The testing was limited to Windows and not exhaustive but entities are now generated. If there are specific failures, we'll file them as separate bugs later. Marking the fix verified.
