Subject Re: Please urgent : Why french accentual chara cters (like à è) not display
Date Wed, 25 Apr 2001 15:38:21 GMT
Are you using the actual characters or the HTML standins for special
If you are just typing the characters, the browser may not be able to
display them 
as is. Try using the HTML special characters.
The special characters begin with an & then the ASCII Number for the
item, then a 
semicolon, for example &151; for a dash. There are lots of HTML books
with charts of 
those. There are also some easy-to-remember shortcuts like &agrave;
&egrave; &aacute; 
&eacute; &acirc; that might help.
Hope that helps.
