in reply to Additions to Approved HTML

The problem is that *your browser* is sending Ā for both "Ā" and for "Ā", and there's no way to differentiate between the two.

Fixing this requires changing the charset PerlMonks uses throughout.

    Thanks, ikegami. I had removed the original suggestion for changes to the '<code>' element from the proposal (see Re^2: Additions to Approved HTML). I should've also updated the OP - now done.

      It's still in the OP.

      It would, of course, be important, that <code uni> still renders character entity references as written; e.g. &gt; still renders as &gt; and not >.

      It's impossible to have auto-escaping and be able to display Ā.

      Update: Oh I see what mean. You "removed" it by adding an update that says it's been removed.
