They work in my Mozilla 1.7.5.
However, if the font does not have glyphs for these characters, they
will not show or maybe show as a small rectangle. Since most modern
fonts support these character, it seems unlikely that this is the problem.

If the &aring etc. is immediately followed by another letter, then you
should use a closing semicolon: å ä ö etc.
For instance Mozilla will render
G&oumlteborg
as:
G&oumlteborg
but
Göteborg
as desired:
Gteborg
[IE6 renders them both as Gteborg]

The W3C HTML 4.0.1 standard recommends to always use a closing semicolon
in these character entity references. See
<http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/charset.html#entities>

What happens if you use &aring; &auml; &ouml; (note the semicolons)?

Since not all browsers support the entity names, try using the entity
numbers (instead of &Auml; use Ä).

It's a pity you don't recognise how little you know about this topic.
One might almost suspect you haven't bothered to read the better
answers which were previously posted on this thread by others - who
IMNSHO have a much better track record here than yourself.

I challenge you to name a web browser in active use these days -
or indeed that was still in active use 5 years ago - which
does not support *at least* the Latin-1 character entity names (as
proposed in RFC1866, and included in HTML/3.2).
try using the entity numbers (instead of &Auml; use Ä)


Why would it be necessary to "try"? - aren't you confident it's going
to work? Don't you know where to find any FAQs on this topic?

http://www.htmlhelp.com/faq/html/des...tity-or-number

I notice that you've stealthily inserted the trailing semi-colon which
the original poster had apparently omitted - but without saying
anything about why it was important.

....

Digression: in XML it's different. But in HTML-compatible XHTML
one would still expect them to be supported.

Alan J. Flavell,

If the sole purpose of your post was to embarass me because I lack
knowledge, you have not succeeded. I am aware that there are many things I
have not learned in the past 57 years.

I replied to the OP, in good faith, with information I got from the w3
Schools HTML tutorial; one of many sources I have been using in an attempt
to learn HTML If that information is incorrect, I suggest you bring it to
their attention since I do not have sufficient knowledge to properly explain
your reasoning. I am certain they would welcome the opportunity to make the
necessary corrections, if for no other reason than to preclude another
student from making the same error I have made.

Yes, I used the word 'try' because I have no way of knowing, for certain, if
my suggestion will help (what you described as a lack of confidence).

If you would care to discuss this further, let's take it outside the
newsgroup.

Thank you for the warning. Hopefully people now realize how unreliable
the W3 Schools site is.

P.S. Unless you are Richard the troll, who has been spreading out
completely nonsensical "advice" for quite some time, I would suggest
that you use your full name in the From field, to make a difference and
to comply with RFC 1036.

Then you are evidently not ready to offer answers on this topic,
whatever your expertise may be elsewhere.

Lack of knowledge is normal, and represents no problem in itself - I'm
only too keenly aware of my own shortcomings in that regard; it only
becomes a problem when those who lack knowledge (*and fail to
recognise that better answers have already been posted by others*[1])
insist on repeating untested assertions that they have acquired from
other low-quality sources.
If that information is incorrect, I suggest you bring it to
their attention
What, me? If they had the slightest clue they would have read the
existing FAQs before promoting their own views.

[1] This is nothing personal. I'm referring to other well-respected
contributors here.
Yes, I used the word 'try' because I have no way of knowing, for
certain, if my suggestion will help (what you described as a lack of
confidence).
And yet, you could have tried the suggestions made by the other
contributors (and verified their track record on usenet, and on this
hierarchy in particular) and drawn your own conclusions.
If you would care to discuss this further, let's take it outside the
newsgroup.


No thanks. Usenet is a public forum. We who post to it must be
prepared to respond publicly to its critiques. I've done the same
often enough myself, and I don't see why you should be any different.

good luck
