Want to use special characters/ diacritics?

I know this site has been a pain when you have some special characters (n-tilde, umlauts, etc) in the name of products you are using. There is a solution.

The standard comment interface is WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get), but it doesn't accept those characters. But one of the little buttons at the top of the comment box allows you to type your comment in html, and therein lies the secret. Before you start writing, click the little button on the end that looks like a page with <> on it. That gets you into html mode. then write what you need to write, but when you get to the special characters, use html code for that character:

so instead of "Goteborg's Rape" you type "G&ouml;teborg's Rap&eacute;" to get the correct accent marks. Post it from the html mode, and your special characters will appear.

  • I don't think of it as English, but some other internet hybrid manner of communication. Once I had figured out html in the early 90s, CSS and Flash and other stuff came along and I just threw up my hands and gave up. Since then it's all just whippersnapper code.

    Pöschl - nice!
  • That's a nice workaround but completely unnecessary. I don't know who is in charge of editing the code for this site but it should only involve adding a meta tag (<meta charset="utf-8"/>) immediately after the opening <head> tag for each document. I know this has been mentioned before, not sure why it hasn't been implemented. More information here for anybody interested.
  • @cpmcdill: It works! Thanks very much for taking away my frustration!
