much trouble though when passing clips in eMail because of the
tabs being converted to spaces that Eric added the format you see
used most the time on the list.
Congratulations on your first Clip. :)

"Modify-->Characters to HTML-->Extended Characters"
I use that one too. But I find it usefull to be able to convert just the
language specific ones. Especially to toggle them on and off. It's hard to
read a doc where there is lots of enteties. Swedish has three extra vocals,
all enteties of cource.
Just want to say that next to NTP itself I find this list the most usefull
thing yet. And it's a nice and friendly place to be, too.
The problem with help files, I think, is that you have to know a little to
be able to understand them. In this case, if you don't know what a
command, event or loop is you are stuck. And in most cases there is no one
to ask...This is probably the main reason
people use only a fragment of the capacity of their programmes.
Here's to you all!

The whole point of the list is for people to ask questions & get
help. We all started where you are but those who were here earlier
got to learn in stages as the clip language expanded based on user
You'll find the list is very 'gentle' with lots of people willing
to help. It's never been one of those lists where people answer
new users with stuff like 'read the documentation', although we
might direct you to certain areas of the Help file to avoid having
to retype stuff that's there :) There's so much, it's hard to find
just what you need when you need it. Everyone on the list understands
that so feel free to ask away!

Are you confusing
1: "Modify-->Characters to HTML-->Extended Characters"
2: "Modify-->Characters to HTML-->All special characters"?
Notice what happens when changing "<©ÅÄ Ö>&":
1: "<©ÅÄ Ö>&"
2: "<©ÅÄ Ö>&"
I use a simple clip to convert to ISO codes, and a more complex
one to convert back (finding ISO codes, so I don't "strip" html
tags from the document):
;reverts ALL ISO code to the underlying character.
^!Find "&[a-zA-Z]*;" TWHRS
o The clip above will FIND "&abc;", but IF that
is not a legitimate ISO code, it cannot convert
it, and keeps finding it again: endless loop!
o The clip WILL convert codes like ">", so if
there is some embedded html display, it WILL
get converted, and MESS UP the web page.
Correcting these bugs would make this clip a _lot_
>I hear you, but which characters do you *not* want to translate forWell, sometimes it's not necessary to convert all and sometimes you want to
use others enteties than ISO...

comtains a lot of 'corious' carachters it's very handy to be able to turn
just those on and of. God help people in the east. Have searched for that a
long time - and now I've got it!
By the way, snatched your clip and will check it out.
