Hello

> I have just bought a licence for Wordfast, which I use mainly to translate
HTML pages. The problem I have is that the Translation Memory transforms the
HTML code into different characters, which I was told was normal, but then
when I choose to use the sentence stored on the TM (cause it gives me 100%
match), the program doesn't change it back to 'normal' HTML code, so the web
page later appears wrong.

> For the Source text sentence:
> Don't miss

> The Translation Memory has kept:
> &t=&tA&\;No se lo pierda&t=&tB&\;

> The wording is right but the code is different. If I choose this sentence
for my page, the HTML doesn't work properly. What I am having to do at the
moment is copying and pasting the HTML code from the Source text onto the
Target text every time it shows wrong.

Has anyone had a similar problem? I have tried many things, also downloaded the latest Wordfast version, but nothing seems to solve the problem. I am also talking to Hotline but no luck so far...

Many thanks!
