I think I have found the solution to this problem. All one needs to do is insert these characters as character entities. For example, a macron (ā) is & #257 (without the space).
In NOF one can insert HTML at any point, so one must insert the Unicode character code wherever it appears in a link. If it is not in a link, one can just paste the Unicode character into the text from the clipboard via Wordpad. Unfortunately, there doesn't yet seem to be a way to type Unicode directly in NOF 4, though it does support UTF-8 encodoing.
Is this a messy solution that will cause problems in some browsers, or is it safe enough? It seems to work fine in both Opera and Internet Explorer, i.e. the Unicode characters display correctly and the links still work.
Barry, the font used is Verdana, not Unicode Garland. It is a standard Windows font. The only extended characters used are also available in Times New Roman, Arial, Book Antiqua, etc. There might be a problem for Windows 3.1 users.
What do you mean by "I just get letters and numbers"?
Yes, the brain stops functioning properly after midnight.
I also discovered that Verdana has a dot below combining diacritical mark - just what I need for Pali, but there is not way to tell where the browser is going to position it. It works in Net Objects Fusion, but the output result is unpredictable. A pity, it would have been a neat solution.
