I'm new to Dreamweaver and have CS3 installed as the English
language version. I am developing a site which will be purely
French - no language selector. I will be provided the site text
content - in French.
I did some experimenting and if in the designer view I paste
the French text, e.g. L’Ecole I get just that, but what I
really want is L’Ecole using the HTML entity.
What's the best way to get the French text into the content
as HTML? Do I have to comb through the text and manually make the
changes? Eventually content managers will have access to upload new
content. How will that be generated as HTML.
These are probably stupid questions that have obvious
answers, but I'm not sure what they are. Please help.

The default encoding in CS3 is UTF-8, which supports
written language under the sun and doesn't require the use of
entities. If you want to use HTML entities, switch the
to Western European.
