I am having problems with macrons, especially a-macron, in post editing. I need to use a-macron (a horizontal bar over the letter 'a'). This character does not appear in the Windows character map.
So I change the page editor to HTML mode and enter the HTML code
& # 2 5 7 ;. I update the page and it displays correctly.
When I next open the page for editing, the editor is in Visual mode and I see the a-macron correctly displayed. If I now updating the page, the a-macron is replaced on the page with a ?. The next time I edit the page, I'll see a ? instead.
The only workaround I have found is that every time I edit a page with a-macron, I have to changed back to HTML mode and do a search and replace on ?s to change them back to the HTML codes.
How can I fix this problem? Is there a different editor, a change to editor settings, or some plugin that will help?
