Reply to: Numeric character references

Please see the following topics in XMetaL Author's help for answers:

“Special characters and symbols”
“Character encoding”

Note that the need to include character entity references in documents only affect clients not working with UTF-8 or UTF-16 XML and SGML documents. UTF-8 is the recommended encoding for XML (and the default encoding used by XMetaL Author unless otherwise declared in the XML declaration) so unless you have legacy software somewhere in your workflow that cannot handle Unicode I would highly recommend using UTF-8. This encoding is the most universally compatible encoding type when it comes to XML processors, editors, transformation engines, and other XML-related software applications.
