Response to Make7 (Original post)

78. For accents like É that work in thread and post titles use "É" etc.

Most, if not all, ASCII characters that are in the range 128 to 255 get removed by the DU code from any title. This annoyingly ends up with people being called "Jos" rather than "Josť" and so on. However, using the named character references works. Full list:

https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/named-characters.html#named-character-references

So,
É for É
é for é
â for â

and so on. A bit tedious, but especially for thread titles, it can be good to get it right to avoid "who's that?" and "can't you spell their name properly?" replies.

But note that if you use 'Preview', or come back to edit your post, it'll show the actual character you want, and then you'll have to edit it again before actually posting.

Any corrections or further tips gratefully received.
