Polish letters

I would like to write correct poloish letters, e.g. in the following page:
http://www.kairos-team.de/?lang=pl

There are such letters as ł, ń, ę, and so on.

I found these letter sin polish wikipedia, I looked at the source code,
but there is nothing to be seen, what I can do to make these letters.

thanks for help

Werner

The best way is to find the Unicode number of the character, either

- graphically and by name in the code charts http://www.unicode.org/charts/
(most, if not all Polish will be in Latin-1 or Latin Extended A)

- only by name in the code table
http://www.unicode.org/Public/UNIDATA/UnicodeData.txt

Once you have the number, e.g. 0119 for e with ogonek, you can write the
character in HTML as ę .

Cutting and pasting from text containing such characters will often work
but depends on many parameters, in particular on the character sets on the
way from the original text file to the final place in the web page (which,
in your case, is in code ISO-8859-1 and thus canot contain genuine Polish
characters except if coded as described above). The way described above
uses only ASCII characters and should therefore work everywhere.

Use UTF-8 instead of an ISO codepage.

If you haven't already, read Jukka Korpela's web pages on the subject.

He also has an O'Reilly book, if you need to know the big picture
(but probably not, for just Eastern Europe)

Finally, you might need some tools for actually typing the characters. For
example, if you use Windows, you might enable and use the Polish keyboard
setting from Microsoft. It takes some time to get used to it, since some of
the character assignments don't match your physical keyboard keycaps,
Another option is to buy a Polish keyboard, with Polish layout,
repeating this process for each language you need to support. The cost
of keyboards is trivial in comparison to the commercial of language
errors in your product (YMMV). The biggest difficulty may be in
finding a native speaker to navigate the website of an in-country PC
vendor to sell one to you.

You could write them as character references &#number; .
See
http://www.unics.uni-hannover.de/nht...ilingual2.html

Note that decimal character references are better supported among
browsers and editors than hexadecimal references.
