I apologize if this question has been asked before but I couldn't find it.

Is there a way to handle special characters in WF Pro? I need ë in my language.
When converting back to html, this appears as ë

Wordfast Version: 2.2.3
Build id: 20091013-1908
OS: Vista

Am I doing something wrong?

Before importing the HTML file into WFP, open it in NotePad. You should find a code starting with: meta http-equiv=”content-type” .... charset=....

Make sure you change the last part to appear like this:

charset=UTF-8

I hope this helps. Please let me know.
