( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

thanks for the help guys, I think i've kind of hacked this one ;) here's what i've done.

This is actually PHP, I did it on the front end, rather than at the point of loading into the database.

$trans = array( "" => "À", "" => "à", "" => "Á", "" => "á", "" => "Ã", "" => "Ì", "" => "ì", "" => "Í", "" => "í", "" => "Î", "" => "î", "" => "Ò", "" => "ò", "" => "Ó", "" => "ó", "" => "Ô", "" => "ô", "" => "é", "" => "è", "" => "È", "" => "Ù", "" => "ù", "" => "Ú", "" => "ú", "" => "Û", "" => "û", "" => "", "" => "" ); $name = strtr($row["name"], $trans2);

I'm off to the pub now to think about it a bit more ;)
