Description ubq7 2001-03-28 00:01:19 UTC
(*** This bug was imported into bugs.kde.org ***)

Package:           quanta
Version:           KDE 2.1.1 
Severity:          wishlist
Installed from:    Debian Packages
Compiler:          2.2.18 (gcc 2.95.2)
OS:                Linux
OS/Compiler notes: Not Specified

It would be cool if I just type an german letter like ü à ä à ö à à (may not display correctly) and quanta would not type those in the editor window but their allowed replacements ü Ü ä Ä ö Ö ß because this is something that you forget to do very often.

I miss this feature, too. But it should be optional.
Comment 2 Chris Hornbaker 2003-07-17 17:31:50 UTC
Using XHTML encoded with UTF-8 will produce valid documents without the need to
use entities (ü and so on). (This is the reason UTF-8 exists.)

The following is a valid XHTML heading encoded in UTF-8.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/xhtml; charset=UTF-8"/>

Subject: Re: automatic german letters replacement

With the KFileReplace (global replace) plugin you can set up rules to replace 
german letters with &; strings. Alternatively you can use utf-8 encoding for 
your files and get rid of &; strings. I don't close the bug yet, but will do 
soon when the KFileReplace plugin will be easier to use.

CVS commit by amantia: 

Solve the oldest wish in Quanta (and the wish with the most votes): add possibility of as-you-type replacing of accented chars. By default it's turned off.

How about a special menu command for replacing accented characters to their HTML equivalents and vice versa? For example when pasting text from other sources, this would be useful.
