A@ → à
B@ → ç
I do not know how to perform these 15 F&R within a simple regex.Suppose I would like to build it for the two above, what should I write?
Nota: I already use utf8 for the whole text.
I'm not sure what you're asking for is feasible. What you've described is something that would be more suited to an external program/algorithm (or a plugin) rather than one single Regular Expression. Finding
all 15 with one expression wouldn't be the hard part... replacement
based on "if/then" logic is where it would fall apart.
