Character Entity Macro

Description

The EntityMacro package returns HTML 4.01 numeric character entity references from their corresponding names.

The character entity data is straight out of the DTD for HTML 4.01 so if there are errors or ommissions you can blame it on the W3C, not me. ;-)

See: Character entity references in HTML 4 for more information.

Calling the macro like so: [[Entity(name)]] returns the value. If no name matches, it returns an empty string. Names are case-sensitive, in other words, aacute is not the same code point as Aacute. Keyword syntax is also supported: [[Entity(name=name)]].

The macro is useful in any wiki formatted page.

Installation

Download the zipped source. Unzip the archive to a temporary location, visit the 0.11 directory and run:

python setup.py bdist_egg
cp dist/*.egg /trac/env/Project/plugins

Configuration

Enable the macro in: /trac/env/Project/conf/trac.ini:

[components]
entity.* = enabled

You may have to restart you Web server.

Examples

[[Entity(raquo)]]
[[Entity(name=raquo)]]

Both of these examples will return »
