textfield JS/HTML5 does not understand / display special characters - html entities

  • Is there a way to make textfield display special chararacters like: çãâ etc.?

    Wenn putting html-entities


    = ã, a fatal error occurs - xml parsing failed.

    <head>	<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /></head>

    is being ignored.


  • Hi,

    I'm not sure yet, but I think html-entities are not supported inside xml...
    maybe try using Unicode UTF8 xml files and write the characters directly there as they are.

    Btw - a html header doesn't do anything inside a xml and the textfield plugin itself is not a html browser and doesn't parse that or do any character conversion, this was already done by the browser during loading the xml.

    Best regards,
