html and special characters

From:Dieter Mitrik <mjtrjk@...>

to use unicode in your html pages you'll only need to add a single line in the
head section of the document:

[meta http-equiv="CONTENT-TYPE" content="text/html; CHARSET=UTF-8">

i've made two small demos
this demo lets you enter a range in unicode and then prints out a table of the
respective characters as they will be displayed in your browser;

as you can see, unicode reserves a range called "combined diacritical marks" with
which you can then easily manufacture the glyphs you require, i.e.

please note that the used font is "Lucida Sans Unicode" which should be available to
most platforms (IIRC, it is shipped with the JavaRuntime additionally);

this demo converts a pasted-in text into the htmlized (&#nnnn;) equivalent which
could afterwards be copied into your html source documents;
