Checklist for the character encoding in HTML

I am looking for the checklist for the character encoding in HTML. I have recently started studying about the character encoding, so I am not having enough idea about it. Since, you guys explain in simple language, I thought that instead searching on Internet it would be better if I post here. Please provide some useful information that can help me in above topic. I am expecting some quicker help from your side. Any other information related to the topic would be grateful.

Re: Checklist for the character encoding in HTML

First you should know some basic things about character encoding in HTML. Coded character designates a character in a specific encoding, ie a single byte (octet) in the case of an 8-bit code or an appropriate sequence of bytes in the case of a multibyte encoding. In contrast, a character in HTML can also by one of the & -form (as a character name by &entity; , as signs point &#number; decimal (Supports wide) or &#xhhhh; hexadecimal (less support)) are presented. Theoretically, the three different types of character representation - the encoded character, the character and number (where available) the character name - equivalent in HTML.

The purpose of this checklist is to examine the practical problems, the actual situations one or the other representation advantageous to appear in. Declare referred to as an indication of the specific coding, in which the document server to send out is the HTTP. In the MIME terminology is done by the parameter charset , as an abbreviation for the coded character set "is to be understood. This should in the HTTP header Content-Type: text/html;charset= are specified. ... According to the HTML rules can discover all this on the line <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset= ... "> head of the HTML document in the state. But this is both theoretically and practically less satisfactory. The head of the XHTML document could be the line <?xml version="1.0" encoding=" ... "?> be required.

Versatility: coding techniques here are recommended to use all valid techniques in line with the published rules and may (subject to the limitations of the recommended regimens) of the one in the other type of converted automatically. Thus, it is not essential that an editor / tool, the recommended form produces exactly: you can form automatically convert one form into another.

Re: Checklist for the character encoding in HTML

Even if the discussed versions of browsers are capable of technically, to implement the procedure described, it is not certain that a specific browser installation that also dominates: the user might need a special font (eg Thai, Armenian, ...) or character encoding must manually set a user when the browser is this question coming in coding not supported explicitly. One can expect that the user places the details have already solved this in. But if outsiders "these documents are properly considered" well, it might be advantageous to a small test page with a screen shot (so the results can be compared) to provide. Some comments may be necessary settings (the browser should be carried on) and changes to the system should also be given.

Re: Checklist for the character encoding in HTML

The use of names &entityname; instead of UTF-8 encoding, helps with Latin-1 characters rediscover strings. But of course that does not help the case of characters not in the Latin 1 character set is. For the names of characters outside of HTML 4.0 Latin 1, there is a dilemma. On the one hand, there is no doubt that the format &#bignumber; implemented is more than the format &entityname; , if only because of the 4 versions of Netscape. On the other hand is probably a browser &entityname; does not understand something intelligible. Show (namely the word "entityName"), while one who &#bignumber; not understand, incomprehensible garbage will likely present (or in some browser versions, the number bignumber " take modulo 256 "and the sign of the displays the results accordingly). Thus, a general recommendation, which preferred form is difficult: it depends only on the context, not replace, but also what the error behavior is preferred.
