I'm looking for a grep or script that will allow me to put accents on letters. For instance, taking e and making it ē with the macron above it. Our authors indicate they want this by indicating it this way:
e[set macron over e]
At this point, I have simple find/replaces loacking all of those and replacing them with the ē. It's the same for every letter asking for a specific accent above.
I'm hoping to figure out a grep or script that will keep my find/replace list from getting too big. At this point, I've got 35 find/replace just to locate these, and my list is growing every time I encounter another accent. Considering how much each letter has...
Anybody know of a simple way to do this?
