Go west
Paradise is there
You'll have all that you can eat
Of milk & honey over there
(Natalie Merchant, "San Andreas Fault")

Replace Entities

Once upon a time, some guys invented ASCII. As these guys were Americans, they did not care (or probably not even know) about the rest of the world and said: ``128 different characters are enough.'' So, nowadays you still can't copy a simple German umlaut from one computer system to another and be sure it will come out the same.

But, thank god, the guys who perpetrated html, after about 30 years of a computer world without working umlauts, provided a solution to this tricky problem: Instead of typing ``Ü'', simply write Ü. Congratulations, what a great idea! 7 bit rulez!

So as consequence of this prehistoric crap, hsc can replace special characters in the hsc-source with its entities in the html-object. You just need to enable the RPLCENT switch.

Note:This only works for special characters that have been defined with <$defent> in hsc.prefs
