I had to do some work on our Quebec, I mean QuÃ©bec website, and all my text for the site came from our Montreal, I mean MontrÃ©al office. Now, whether it comes in Word (as I’ve had it) or in notes in a PDF file (as happened to be the case this time) those pesky little accent aigues and accent graves are painful to have to search through and replace with HTML entities or UTF-8 or Unicode gobbledygook. Not to mention the circonflexes and cÃ©dilles.
While casting about fruitlessly in BBedit for some way to save myself many tears and not a few drops of blood, I turned to my forever friend, Google.
A few quick searches, and I was happily converting accented text to HTML with Textile, an app that does more than it says.
Tres, I mean trÃ©s cool, and much appreciated. I shall have to make use of that Paypal icon next to the text input box.
