HTML Entities and Browsers
Posted on 2007-03-21
I am generating HTML pages from XML. I would like to know whether the XML entities and HTML are same.
ie., For instance, XML "Thin Space" has the entity code " ", I would like to know whether I have to code this XML entity as " " or "ߙ" in HTML without the 'x'.
I am seeing a difference in recognizing the entities in Firefox and in IE. For Instance, the entity "Thin Space" is reflected as a "Thin Space" in Firefox but it is displayed as a box character in IE. The Character Encoding selected in both the browsers are UTF-8.
