OK, now I think I understand what you mean. There is a problem when
character entities are used in mail - my reader displays them as the
letters they describe, so I thought that you are putting the alpha
character in literally (using a greek keyboard or whatever).
The problem with character entities (I will write them without the
leading ampersand in order to prevent their decoding) is that thing like
x2022; and other numerical entities are defined in both XML and HTML.
However alpha;, minus;, etc. are only defined in HTML and XML defines
only amp; lt; gt; quot;.
Because BKChem uses an XML parser to process the entered text, only the
numerical entities and the four entities included in XML are supported.

However, it is a very good idea to allow use of other HTML entities and
I will incorporate it in a future release of BKChem.

        Best regards and thanks for your input
