Description nbphpuser 2009-03-30 16:42:12 UTC

typing '&' in html file we get nice list of available entities, but
not what they mean. For example, the first suggestion is

but what is it?

Would be nice to have in suggestion list a second column with original
char for that entity.

Further, nice feature of most editors is, converting text into html entites:

Köln -> Köln

This is not available in NB

I have fixed the first problem so far - the html completion now shows the characters represented by the entities.

fixed in web-main#def12ac30056
