Feature request: A format - paragraph option to auto-convert accented characters (etc) into HTML entities such as è for the "e grave" character available on many european keyboards. Otherwise, other web browser might misinterpret the character and display incorrect text or even an error message. The code for this is already in the public-domain as a part of HTML-TIDY avaialable at: http://www.w3.org/People/Raggett/tidy/ It would be nice to have the inverse conversion too.
Composer already saves è as è. ISO-Latin1 chars are encoded using mnemonic entities. Other chars are saved using decimal numeric references. However, this is not reflected in the source view. If this bug is about saving the file, I think this bug is invalid. If this bug is about showing the entity references in the source view exactly as they get written to disk, then this bug needs resummarizing.
moving to future and adding keywords
what is the bug here?
Forget this feature request! - the functionality is already in Editor. Accents get converted to text when you save to file. The HTML source view is slightly misleading because it doesn't show the HTML-entity versions. But I'm not complaining since the result is a lot more readable. Well done guys
Gavin, please mark this VERIFIED-FIXED if you can...thanks...
