Re: Decision: C.4 (Predefined entities)
| A few of the entity names are rendered on the Netscape 3.0 and MS
| Internet Explorer 3.0 with suprising results.
I'm not surprised. :-)
| In both browsers at least one substitution is for a wrong character:
| ∉ is recognized by both browsers as ¬ and either "in;" or
| "in" is retained after that substitution for the not, a known entity
| in ISO Latin 1.
That's actually correct at this point. "notin" is one of the entities
that got approved at the recent HTML ERB meeting but is not part of
the HTML standard yet. The entities on Bob's list that appear under
"Adobe Symbol Font" are not part of the current HTML 3.2 spec but will
be part of Cougar.
| Cedilla; should be cedilla;
| What is the basis for picking up the Adobe symbol font?
The symbol font is supported on all the common Web browser platforms.
| Current anomalies in support:
| >ISO Latin 1
| >======= Netscape 3.0 MS Internet
| ¨ die unknown, ok
| keeps ¨
| ¯on; macron ok but as macr ok but as macr
| keeps on; or on keeps on or on
They're right; this should be "macr".
| °ree; degree ok but as deg ok but as deg
| keeps ree; or ree keeps ree or ree
They're right; this should be "deg".
| ¸ Cedilla unknown, keeps all ok+keeps la
| (should be ¸la;
| as lower-case) ¸la ok, ok
| keeps la; or la keeps la la
They're right; this should be "cedilla".
| Adobe Symbol Font
| Only ones I found supported are:
| >notin wrong symbol wrong symbol
| keeps in; or in keeps in; or in
| >trade unknown, ok, as raised
| keeps all smallcap TM
Right, none of the symbol set is officially supported yet.
Thanks for your help with this, Harvey.
