OS X HTML editor that handles foreign characters
April 26, 2005 8:25 PM   Subscribe

The only reason I keep Mozilla around (I use Firefox mainly) is for Mozilla Composer. It's the only thing I've found where I can paste in foreign-language text (with accent marks and special characters) and then have it give me the HTML to properly reproduce those special characters on a web page. Anyone know of a more stand-alone equivalent? If I could get an app (preferrably free or shareware) for OS X that can do this, I can ditch the Mozilla suite.

Will Nvu do it? It's a standalone, enhanced version of the Mozilla Composer.

Wow, that was quick - and *exactly* what I was looking for. Thanks!

Nvu does look pretty cool! It may also be worth looking at cuneAform, it's a firefox extension rather than full standalone.

I use & recommend Kavasoft's HTML Character Converter.

I also kept an old version of Netscape just for the Composer portion, which I like to use to make simple web pages. I'm going to also try Nvu. Thanks for the link.

Unicode Checker is what I use. It installs a Services menu, so you can just select some text in your current app and have it converted in place. I use this all the time when editing wikipedia.
