Using special characters

In FortiNAC Portal Version 2, there are times when you may need to include special characters in your content that may not exist on your keyboard or may not display properly when copying and pasting. In those cases, you can use the following chart and replace those characters with the HTML entity name or the HTML entity number. See the examples below:

  1. Entering the following in the Content Editor:

    L'accès au présent système est réservé aux utilisateurs autorisés de la Banque. Toute activité dans ce système peut être enregistrée et surveillée. Conformément à la politique de la Banque, il est interdit aux utilisateurs de faire un usage inapproprié ou non autorisé du système. Un tel acte peut être passible de sanctions. En utilisant le système, vous reconnaissez avoir lu et compris le présent avis et acceptez de le respecter.

  2. Will render the following in the Captive Portal:

    L'accès au présent système est réservé aux utilisateurs autorisés de la Banque. Toute activité dans ce système peut être enregistrée et surveillée. Conformément à la politique de la Banque, il est interdit aux utilisateurs de faire un usage inapproprié ou non autorisé du système. Un tel acte peut être passible de sanctions. En utilisant le système, vous reconnaissez avoir lu et compris le présent avis et acceptez de le respecter.

ISO-8859-1

  • ISO-8859-1 is the default character set in most browsers.
  • The first 128 characters of ISO-8859-1 is the original ASCII character-set (the numbers from 0-9, the uppercase and lowercase English alphabet, and some special characters).
  • The higher part of ISO-8859-1 (codes from 160-255) contains the characters used in Western European countries and some commonly used special characters.
  • Entities are used to implement reserved characters or to express characters that cannot easily be entered with the keyboard.

Reserved characters in HTML

Some characters are reserved in HTML and XHTML. For example, you cannot use the greater than or less than signs within your text because the browser could mistake them for markup.

Entity names are case sensitive.

HTML and XHTML processors must support the five special characters listed in the table below:
