Hi,
        I would appreciate if someone could tell me what is currently the
norm for internatinal chars. on the WWW.  Do we still have to type the codes
(&eacute; for an =E9) or can we type the character in the HTML file.  With=
 all
the browsers I tried, the &eacute; is useless since the software recognised
the characters (=E9).

        Thank you

        Frederic Naud
