Why should Amaya encode the &emdash; in a UTF-8 document, when emdash is a Unicode character (and all Unicode characters should be available in UTF-8 by definition)?

Personally, I would put the content-type meta tag first, before even the title; but I don't remember how Amaya does this.

  Subject: input list bug

The input list popups that list choices do not display the emdash <BR>
properly.&nbsp; Also, since the attached page is UTF-8, Amaya should encode <BR>
the emdash as &amp;emdash; not the actual character.<BR>
