As someone pretty new to working with EAD, I hope that someone will be able
to clarify my confusion about displaying special characters, such as e with
acute accent or u with an umlaut.
Is it the case that if I create an EAD file using entities in the form of
é rather than the Unicode format of é then there is no way I
can get them to display in Internet Explorer?
I know that XML uses Unicode, so I can see that using the decimal number is
correct for XML. However, I'm using XMLSPY, and this lists the character
entities as ISO entities. It seems odd that XMLSPY, an editor for XML
documents, uses these when they don't display in a browser.
I see that a number of people reading this list use XMLSPY, and I'm hoping
someone can confirm to me whether it is the case that I can't use the
facility in XMLSPY for adding special characters if I want the document to
display in the browser?
