    special characters

    Hi all,

    A question, I'm currently updating websites for clients. They send me new texts in word files for me to implement. I copy/paste them in Dreamweaver.

    My problem is tha special characters like 'ë' etc aren't displayed properly. I know how to fix this. In Dreamweaver you can insert a html > special character.
    I takes me a ****load of time to do this in all the pages. I use 'search' and then 'change all'. It's easy to make errors this way, or to forget one or two. I am wondering if there is an easier way to do so. For instance a conversion to html in word or something?

    Any suggestions?

    thanks in advance!

    Word HTML

    a conversion to html in word...
    You could do that, but you'll probably be spending more time cleaning up the junk that Word spits out; then again, you might be able to clean that up with HTML Tidy.

    I did a Google for "convert special characters to html entities"; this shows a couple of different programmatic solutions in Javascript, Java, etc. Most server side scripting languages have functions for this, but of course I don't know if that is an option for you.
