Problem with French accents, converting HTLM (ISO8859-1) to LRF

Hello !

My problem deals with French accent after conversion of HTLM source.

I understood that I had to enter the source code of the text and so I got the list of aliases from the python website.
I tried to enter all of them (corresponding to ISO-8859-1) in the "Look and Feel" section: latin, latin1, L1, iso8859-1....... Always the same bad result.

Does anyone know the solution ?


Thanks !
Alexandre

it would be helpful to see some of the text you are trying to convert, and the result in the lrf. can you attach a screenshot perhaps ?

Could it be that the french "accents" are not written as special HTML characters? For example it should be ç for a ç in source code and the language in the HTML file should be fr.

Oh, et bienvenu au sein de notre belle communauté.

Why do you have a French accent? Perhaps this is due to you being a native speaker or French? People tell me I have a "Boston" accent down here in Florida. But, I tell them I sound nothing like Bostonians. My accent is certainly a Rhode Island accent.

Hmm that should not happen. Can you attach one the html files that causes this problem to a ticket on the calibre website.
