We are in the process of changing the encoding of our site to UTF-8 however we found out that its not just changing the charset to UTF-8 but also changing the characters themselves. I have posted separate questions on this but this question is to ask which is best to do? Is it encoding the pages in UTF-8 Compliant characters meaning not everything are in entity form or covert all non-ASCII characters to entity form?
(1) What will be the problems for each choice?
(2) Which is more readable?
(3) Which has the most compatibility?
(4) We are working wih Dreamweaver, which will have the same result as when working or entering characters in Dreamweaver because we would like to do the maintenance once.
