Could it be that you cannot use all these foreign characters in menu text? I have the impression that the semicolon in there will be interpreted as end of text, is that right? How would you do it the right way?

And how would you use semicolons in menu text? Can you escape it with backslash?

I would like to know the same think for text in showtip.

Character codes are okay, let us know if it appears otherwise.

It's also important to know, that e.g. the french language uses the '-sign often. You have to escape this sign: l'amour will be l\'amour.

Hi,

The system is smart enough to know that something like   is a non-breaking space and so add this as a character without breaking the text string.

However, there are times when this may fail usually because you have included an equals sign as well as a semi colon. In this instance you would need to use back quotes, like this.

Code:
aI("text=`Here ┬áis an equal sign "="`;url=#");


Note the use of "Back Quotes" rather than a normal quote mark.

Hope this helps
Andy

I just was trying to debug a PHP generated menu file that wouldn't show the menu. Thanks to your answers I will now look for other possible causes.

showtip and ó

Is showtip() as smart as aI() in this respect?
