Sorry for replying so late. I tried to cope with the problem

Write a page having that character set and display the various combinations. Then come back and explain the results.That way we all learn something.
As far as I understand with the following charset <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> both decimal and exadecimal NCRs can be written, even if decimal ones are to be preferred.I don't have to write UTF-8 code units because I'm using the above-mentioned charset.The same decimal and exadecimal NCRs can be written with an ISO charset.The result? I can switch the browser encoding options and get the same page.One final point: the code should be written using a UTF-8 format without BOM in order to have a wider accessibilityMaybe someone is interested in some tests: they can be seen hereTest_N.1Test_N.2Test_N.3I haven't managed yet to be able to write a php page with decimal characters encoded with UTF-8.Hope it helps, but I hope someone may have some tips.Is there any editor which turns diacritical signs into decimal NCRs, for instance?Thanks
