Summary0001981: Transliteration
DescriptionI downloaded the then-latest build of NetSurf a couple of days ago (29 Sep 2004) and discovered today that it seems to be unable to render any of the HTML 4 entities such as lsquo, mdash, etc. My previous version (12 May 2004) appears to render them as expected, and I can't find any mention of such a limitation in the progress notes.
Additional Informationtlsa added a note on Thu Sep 6 15:23:29 2007

Original bug - as reported - was fixed with RUfl glyph substitution, however transliteration should be reimplemented. Moving to feature requests.

Ok, this is due to the addition of Unicode text support. the previous transliteration of unknown characters to known ones was dropped. This still needs to be done.

I'm not seeing this. This page works fine (on both RO5 and Select):

This is fixed but we will not be adding transliteration support to the fallback renderer.
