LibreOffice's Insert Special Character screen is also very good.

It's even better than the default Windows Character Map, because it lets you search.

Side Note: If working on EPUB, Calibre Editor's special character dialog is equally as fantastic.

If on Windows, you can also use BabelMap. It's pretty much a souped up Character Map, allows you to search fonts, find all Unicode characters, create your own buffers, etc. etc.

Yep, that's an okay way to do it too.

In books I work on, I only run across the rare accent, so I have a few of those Wikipedia pages open for exactly what I need. (Like their Greek alphabet + Greek diacritics pages are very well organized.)

I also use FileFormat.info's fantastic "Unicode Character Search".

Unsure what you mean. Can you post a sample document?

It should be as easy as adjusting the default paragraph's Style.

You do know all about Styles... right?

On how to apply Styles, check out the videos I posted in:

"MS Word vs Open Office Word"

On why Styles are so important, read Posts #46+ in:

"eBook Formatting in Sigil"

Ahhh yes yes, I always forget about those 3 since Sigil/Calibre automatically takes care of all of that.

And lest we forget, HTML5 also supports &quot; and &apos; to round out the 5 permitted named entities.

Yep, but I don't think those are needed for text, only for attribute values.

Goes back to when I had my ear chewed on by an author who used named entities for his quote marks and damn near everything else and didn't understand why &rsquo;, etc. were now causing errors when they'd been using them for decades without problems.
