NAME

wml::fmt::isolatin - ISO-Latin-1 to HTML Entity Conversion

SYNOPSIS

  #use wml::fmt::isolatin [global]

  <isolatin>
  Text with ISO latin 1 characters
  for instance german umlauts: ``XXXXXXX''
  </isolatin>

DESCRIPTION

This creates an area substitution with Pass 6 (asubst) for all ISO-Latin-1 characters to their corresponding HTML entities. Note that this is not really necessary because HTML 3.2 states that every browser has to understand ISO-Latin-1 characters. So there is no real need to encode them with this container tag. But it is safe, because the result is 7Bit which can be transferred over more mediums then the 8 Bit version with ISO-Latin-1 characters.

When adding the "global" argument, the complete document gets automatically encapsulated into a "<isolatin>" container.
