Encode HTML Characters

Postby avallo on Fri Aug 29, 2008 9:10 pm

Should WYM be encoding special characters like ® © in the source code view?
When you type in ® or $copy; into the source code view they are converted to the symbol when you submit it.

Or is this something I should be doing before I submit it to the database?

I love the editor, I can't wait tell 0.5 alpha for the inline dialog windows instead of the pop-up windows. May I suggest the jQuery UI dialog, or a way to integrate it into the jQuery UI dialog windows.

Its great to see this editor come back to life.
Keep up the good work.

Encoding special characters is a generally bad idea, it's just a hack to use these kind of characters in encodings that don't support them. And if you're using utf-8 (Unicode) encoding special characters isn't necessary.
