This setting tells the editor to convert accented Latin letters to their relative HTML entities. For example "á" is converted to "á".By default it is set to true so the editor converts the letters.
It is a W3C recommendation, but it is not desired to happen in some cases:

  • If it is typical to enter latin text, then simply set this to false, in order to get the ISO-8859-7 or UTF-8 characters, and not have them converted into entities.
FCKConfig.IncludeLatinEntities = false ;
  • If, on the other hand, text of other languages is typically entered in fckeditor, and you only need latin characters occasionally, then leave this to true, in order to get the entities.

NOTE: This option is dependent of the ProcessHTMLEntities setting.
