I used to use homesite and there is an option to convert extended ascii characters to the character entity throughout the whole document (characters with accents and such in European languages). Does Dreamweaver do this somewhere?
Thanks-

No, but if you can use utf-8 it's not necessary. Then you can just leave them in their normal, easily read form.

If you can't use utf-8, then pasting the text into the page from Design View will automatically make any conversions necessary, though this uses numbered entities rather than character entities.
