Hi,

I am pretty new to Dreamweaver, so I am still learning the basics. I am creating emails with French, Spanish and German content in Dreamweaver, and I wanted to know if I had to write code for the accents in the words, or if I could just paste them in. I am uploading Dreamweaver content to Acoustic Campaign which has the mailing lists. I just want to make sure that between Dreamweaver, IBM Acoustic campaign and the email server, the accents aren't becoming incoherent symbols if I just copy and paste them off of something like word of Google Docs (verses writing them in code).coded accents vs. copied accents.png

Some e-mail clients handle HTML very well while others like Outlook, don't.  But I think HTML entities are widely respected by most e-mail clients providing your header contains the UTF-8 charset.  I think HTML entities are probably safer than copy / pasting characters from MS Word for example.  To be safe though you might want to run some feasibility tests of your own in various devices and e-mail clients.
