Default HTML and National & Special characters

I came across an interesting article today when Googling on guillemets!

HTML authoring in French
This document discusses some basic problems with accented characters, guillemets, etc., when authoring HTML documents in French.

I was married to a French teacher and librarian for about 30 years and never knew the French put a thin space before a colon!

As is often the case this led me on to other papers by the author, who is Finnish and at a Finnish University.

They are a bit old, referring to IE4 I see, but I found them interesting, not that I do any HTML coding.

IT and communication by Jukka "Yucca" Korpela.

Using national and special characters in HTML
