Subject [greenstone-devel] ASCII extended chars in XML
Hi: my problem is about chars in spanish. For example in the titles
list the same Title looks this way
(look at the 6th and 12th words in the example)

in Netscape Navigator 7.0:
Alternativas Ambientales En Finca De Peque&ntildeos Productores En Los
Municipios de Estel□ Y Condega

in Internet Explorer 6.0:
Alternativas Ambientales En Finca De Peque□os Productores En Los
Municipios de Estel□ Y Condega

In documents full text in all the collection the problem remains, and
our collection is made of documents in spanish languaje.

In some documents I read, this chars appears this way:

for □ -- &aacute (not á) and some times: &aacute (with
no ; at end)
for □ -- &eacute (not é) and some times: &eacute (with
no ; at end)

Despite this, using Internet Explorer we can see well the char.

Could anybody helpe me please?
