When I tranlsate a language file, how do I enter special characters like you have in German or French?

Directly as I would in a text editor (ä) or do I use the HTML equivalent ( & a u m l ; ) (of course without the spcaes)?

Thank you!

Yes, I noticed, that both versions work, just wondered, which solution is better.

I believe, you are right, I'll go with the html version.

Thanks!

Just noticed s.th else: It really does not matter how to write the special characters, because WHM will automatically convert all html characters into normal characters the 2nd time you save the edited language file.

special characters like ä and ö

Hello,

I havent get ä,ö working. If i put 'ä' straightly or as a special character or 'ä' and save it, it is changed to ä in the file. What could be wrong, how to get ä.ö right?
