Hi Sean,

It has to do with the encoding of the file. An HTML file encoded in UTF-8 should show the registered trademark symbol correctly. Some text editors will let you change the encoding of a file (EditPad, NotePad++, etc.).

Subject: Accidental à in html ... how?

Hi,

I got some HTML that has à in place of registered trademark symbols.

I tested saving from Word and a variety of copy-paste-into-text editor scenarios, but can't figure out how this happened.

I want to help the original author fix their process so à does not show up in their html text. Anyone have any ideas how they did this? (No, there is no Norwegian or foreign language involved, it's all American English.)

Cheers,

Sean
