    Help with non-standard characters

    I'm not sure where the best place to post this is ... so I'll call it a design issue.

    I've just completed writing up my diary from my most recent holiday in Turkey (http://home.clara.net/ianlloyd/holid...-canakkale.htm). One of the problems I'm having is how to best go about rendering the Turkish characters, such as the letter s with a sadilla (or whatever it's called) underneath, or the little letter i that has no dot (and does make a difference in terms of pronunciation).

    Originally, I did these characters in Word, then saved as HTML (then cleaned up in DreamWeaver!!) so that the character entities woulf work. However, along the way, these have been corrupted.

    I've now changed the special characters back to normal latin near equivalents, but this isn't right.

    My questions are:

    * What character entities should I use for Turkish alphabet
    * What font should I use? I assume that not all fonts will support all these characters.

    Your help will be greatly appreciated

    Regards

    Is this what you are looking for? If so, when I use these, I use the numerical values... just to be sure they will be displayed properly.
