Re: [NTLK] nBlog and roman encoding

The way I get around that with nBlog is to convert accented characters
to their HTML entities. For instance, an e w/ accent grave would be &
+ egrave;, like so: &egrave;

Likewise for e w/ acute: & + eacute;, like so: &eacute;

Works for umlauts, circumflex, etc., you just need to know the HTML
entity. Since nBlog is vomiting out text that will be rendered by a
browser, it works quite well for a workaround.

(This also works well for correct typographical marks, like
&#8220;curly quotes&#8221; and them&#8217;s nice apostrophes&#8212;em
dashes&#8212; etc.
