    Dear Support Team!

    I post this question here, for I am absolutely not a pro just using html on a very basic level, so I don’t even know where should I post a problem like this exactly.

    My problem is: if I type with Hungarian accent characters (from ISO-8859-2 character set), then in the html code I’ll see all these “á Ö” etc stuff.

    Is it absolutely necessary? I hate this very much, it makes things hard to find if I search in the code view. So is it a problem for web browsers to run the html code if there are accents in it? I never faced a problem with that. Somne years ago I used Dreamveawer but it didn’t swap these characters at all. Can I turn this swapping feature off somehow in MyEclipse? I’d prefer to see the text untouched with the typed accents in code view too.

    It is a very important thing to me. (I’d mainly use the software for preparing an eBook, that is 99 % text and only 1 % webdesign…) I am in the process of trying html editors, and MyEclipse seems a good one, but with this character swapping I don’t want it.

    Thank you,
    Gabor

    The quotation you talk about is required (enforced) by the html standards, not by MyEclipse, to enable display of the correct characters independent of the installed charactersets.
    Read all about the standards at http://www.w3c.org website.

    I see, but MyEclipse makes the translation. I’d still prefer turn it off somehow, because the eBook is transated from html by an independent software which deals fairly with the accents…

    I never had any problems with any browsers if the code contained accents, not these stupid #aacute; stuff.
    Down with the w3c!

    I feel myeclipse was money dow the drain.
    I just lost several hours of work, because his majestic myeclipse locked down!
    It freezes more times than that damned ol’ WinME did!

    AAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!
