HTML Special Characters Helper

Admin widget on the Add/Edit Post pages for inserting HTML encodings of special characters into the post.

How do I use the "HTML Special Characters" admin widget to insert special characters into other post fields (such as the post title)?

You can't. The plugin only inserts the HTML character encodings into the post body. However, you can certainly hover over the character you want to use to see the HTML encoding for it (it'll start with an ampersand, &, and end with a semi-color, ;) and type that into the field.

I've activated the plugin and don't see the "HTML Special Characters" admin widget when I go to write a post; where is it?

Refer to the screenshots to get an idea of what the helper widget looks like. You should find the widget in the right sidebar of the admin page when creating or editing a post, most likely at the bottom of the sidebar. It's possible it may have been dragged to someplace below the textarea where you provide the post's content.

If you still can't find it, look to the upper-right of the page for a "Screen Options" link that reveals a panel of options. In the "Boxes" section, ensure the checkbox for "HTML Special Characters" is checked.
