é problems with 2.07


When I type in the htmlview of an article 'é' it shows niceley translated in the normal view, however when switching back to the htmlview the 'é' is gone and replaced by the human readable "translation".

Bug or feature?

Feature. CityDesk uses Unicode internally and é is a valid Unicode character. When the final HTML is written to disk it will be converted to the UTF-8 equivalent which shows up perfectly in all web browsers as long as you have the charset tag

<meta http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

Thanks, it's working fine now.
