Hi Mora-Nisse,
Do these work?

I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

The characters with umlout/dieresis are already included in the HTML Editor under the Characters tab at the left (in the 'Latin Accent Characters' Category). Double-clicking on them inserts them into the HTML file.

Even easier would be to make a Snippet* out of each of the characters using the Entity Names as shown here. One then can double-click on the selected snippet whenever the character is to be inserted in the text.

For speedy entry in longer pieces of text I would be inclined to insert repeated other keyboard characters (e.g. ~~ ## ^^ @@) in place of the characters wanted, and then use HTML Editor's Find and Replace facility to replace those repeated keyboard characters with the Entity Names.

Frank

*Originally creating a Snippet is simply a matter of selecting the character on the main screen of HTML Editor, right-clicking with the mouse on that selected item, and choosing 'Save Selected Text as Snippet'.

The Scadinavian and German characters work fine in the Editor, but some web servers don't seem to like them. Therefore I still have to use å ø ß and such.

PS: I thought Mora-Nisse was a skier, not a web designer?? :D

Inger, what do you mean when you say that some web servers don't seem to like umlauts? I thought that Unicode was standard today.

I thought so too, really, but according to my experience, it seems not to be so. All that I can say is, that some servers display something 'rude' if a page has some Nordic or German chatacters, or even French or Spanish ones, like è, ñ etc.
