Hi,

We are trialing XMetal Authoring 11.0 and trying to get the external entities to show an 'icons' in Tags on View.

When we insert the entity, the icon shows as it should, but if we switch from Tags on View to any other view (and then back to Tags on View), the icon disappears and the actual character shows up instead.

Is this a bug or intentional?

This is intentional if your entity is a numeric character entity reference.

In addition, when you save the document, if the character entity reference has a defined value in the encoding used for the document (by default this is UTF-8 for XML documents) then the character will be saved, not the entity reference. This conversion is automatically applied.

What is your ultimate goal?

Actually, we have resolved it by disabling the character map - now the icons stay put :)

I see. It sounds like I completely misunderstood your issue. Probably best to disregard my previous message (I still don't really know what the problem is or was). If you have resolved it then I guess that's good enough.
