Dear Support Team!

I post this question here, for I am absolutely not a pro just using html on a very basic level, so I don't even know where should I post a problem like this exactly.

My problem is: if I type with Hungarian accent characters (from ISO-8859-2 character set), then in the html code I'll see all these "á Ö" etc stuff.

Is it absolutely necessary? I hate this very much, it makes things hard to find if I search in the code view. So is it a problem for web browsers to run the html code if there are accents in it? I never faced a problem with that. Somne years ago I used Dreamveawer but it didn't swap these characters at all. Can I turn this swapping feature off somehow in MyEclipse? I'd prefer to see the text untouched with the typed accents in code view too.

It is a very important thing to me. (I'd mainly use the software for preparing an eBook, that is 99 % text and only 1 % webdesign...) I am in the process of trying html editors, and MyEclipse seems a good one, but with this character swapping I don't want it.

Thank you,
Gabor

The quotation you talk about is required (enforced) by the html standards, not by MyEclipse, to enable display of the correct characters independent of the installed charactersets.
Read all about the standards at www.w3c.org website.

I see, but MyEclipse makes the translation. I'd still prefer turn it off somehow, because the eBook is transated from html by an independent software which deals fairly with the accents...

I never had any problems with any browsers if the code contained accents, not these stupid #aacute; stuff.
Down with the w3c!

Here is the full HTML 4 reference list of characters that can be used in HTML with the &<something>; encoding.: http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/sgml/entities.html

I'm going to test 'Eclipse Text Editor Extension', wich has a filter to replace &<code>; back into the original characters, that might be of your interest?: http://eclipseexeditor.sourceforge.net/

Ah, it gives me a nice Convert context menu (inside the opened htm file) that allows me to swap between &<code>; and ascii characters (on selected text), and then some other convenient conversions as well :-D

Didn't find the Filter option though, but that doesn't matter to me. Might be related to the ExtendedVsPresentation plugin I'm using, I'm not researching that further, it's a big enhancement already!

Hm :-( I'm completely off here, SORRY. :blush:

All the above mentioned conversions are courtesy of the AnyEdit tools, wich I've been using for some time now, not the 'Eclipse Text Editor Extension' I've referred to before. I just didn't notice they where available...

The AnyEdit tools can be had at: http://andrei.gmxhome.de/anyedit/

I'll be removing the 'Eclipse Text Editor Extension' from my system, it doesn't seem to work properly on my install, and it offers less (usefull) features than the AnyEdit tools.

Lets go for the AnyEdit tools! :-)

Dear Ton,

I see you are a professional in eclipse, so if you don't mind, I'll ask this also here:
I don't find any menu entry to define a paragraph's text style.
I mean, I can only type in the text editor part of the window like <p class="whatever">, but I don't find anything that can be used in the upper part, where you see the preview-like screen. In Dreamweaver, or even in NVU there was a list or a combo containing your predefined styles to choose from. If you clicked into a paragraph, you could choose it's text style by that.
Is there anything similar in MyEclipse 6?

Thanks in advance,
Gabor

Gabor,

I don't do HTML development or even design in Eclipse (just plain Java) so I really can't help you on this.
Better ask in a new thread, preferably in the right sub-forum, for a useful answer.
