Hi, I'm using a web-based platform to translate my webpage into French but when I view the HTML file, sudden mistakes appear.
Every time, I have to write words like "bénéficions" or "expérience" a little square appears in the place of this "é". It's the same with à, û, and similar characters. Shall I use a special combination of charatcers? Am I missing something?
I've found a weird, partial solution for this. I used "Ã¡" to display "á", and "Ã³" to display the "ó". But...as this seems to be very whimsical, my question is: Where do these symbols, Ã¡ and Ã³, come from? Do they mean something?? Is it a new version of the HTML code?
Thanx my dear colleagues.

If you're working with the actual HTML code, use the standard escape codes.
For example, for the lower-case "e" with an acute accent mark you would type the "and" symbol (&) followed immediately by the following:
Other accented vowels follow the same basic pattern.
If you use any other approach, the result may look fine on your web browser but could show garbage characters on other types of computers (e.g., on PC's if used a Mac, or vice-versa).
