Would it be possible for DreamWeaver to mark as errors those special characters that will not render correctly in modern browsers? As the moment my work flow involves uploading a page, checking for errors, finding those effors on the DW file, correcting and then re-uploading.
Secondly, why is the DW special character screen a drop-menu, sub-menu, sub-menu away and then so limited?
which characters are you referring to ?
All sorts: non-breaking spaces, acents, n-dash, m-dash, &, etc. If these are copied into DW they 'appear' to render correctly, when when viewed in a browser I get a black diamond with a ? symbol.
This morning, I copied some text over with "front façade of the building" text in it. I caught two of the "façades" and changed these to "façade", but I missed the third... and had to go back to DW to edit and re-upload.
(I have no idea how "façade" and/or "façade" are going to render in this message.)
What Charset are you using on the site?
You should see something like this in the <head> of your page...
The utf-8 charset should have no issue with the vast majority of accents.
Thanks, the <meta charset="utf-8"> was missing! I have added this now.
The page.php has been up for several years and has been edited many, many times. That may well have been the problem.
dans votre message précédent, vous parliez de navigateurs modernes, de ce fait si votre page est bien encodée, il n'y a pas de nécessité d'employer d'entités HTML.
