If he's talking about Netscape 4.x, it's horribly broken w.r.t. character references and entities. He may have to resort to the Symbol hack because (off the top of my head): - hex character refs are unrecognized - named character entities beyond the latin-1 range are unrecognized - decimal character refs are misinterpreted as being code points in the encoding of the HTML document being displayed, rather than as Unicode code points - decimal character refs outside the range of the encoding of the HTML document being displayed are unrecognized Horrible, horrible state of affairs with that browser. I wish it would die already. Alan's Wood's pages at http://www.hclrss.demon.co.uk/unicode/ explain the situation more thoroughly. - Mike ____________________________________________________________________________ mike j. brown | xml/xslt: http://skew.org/xml/ denver/boulder, colorado, usa | resume: http://skew.org/~mike/resume/ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
