I just integrated FCKeditor into a web app recently and one of the elements that we're using is the Special Characters button, because this app is food related and people need to be able to enter things like crème, etc.
What I'm trying to figure out is if there's a way to have FCKeditor NOT replace those characters with the HTML equivalents (such as è) The reason for this is that there's a search component to the app and if those letters are converted, the searches break, because obviously a search for 'creme' won't find 'crème' whereas it will find 'crème'.
Anybody know of a way to modify the FCKeditor files to get it to NOT replace certain special characters of my choosing?
I've tried a number of things...closest I got was to modify fckeditorcode_ie.js line 44, changing all of the things such as è back to the special character, so that instead of part of that line reading 'è':'è' it now reads 'è':'è' but that didn't work...it still removed the è and left me with an &; in the middle of my word
So, if anyone has any ideas on how to get FCKeditor to leave certain Special Characters alone, I would GREATLY appreciate hearing from you!
Thanks in advance,
