Hi Carsten and Sebastian,

Thanks for your suggestions!


It seems the choice of unicode or not is up to the developer for coding that part. For documentation purpose only, I would prefer to have a first draft of character table which only contains two columns on Worg page:

| Symbol  | Org       |
|---------+-----------+
| \nbsp   | ~\nbsp~   |
| \iexcl  | ~\iexcl~  |
| \cent   | ~\cent~   |

Is that OK?

Xin

Forgot to say:


It's always a good idea to use the unicode entity notations in (X)HTML,
since you will not get an error undefined entity...'

Example:

Use &#160;' instead of &nbsp;'

Sebastian
