    Content language

    rlg0613
      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.

      Thanks.

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