Re: Special Characters: umlauts translated?
The same thing happens with, for example, the ampersand character. As far as I know, there is no solution.
What I do is edit in a programmer's text editor which will, of course, leave the code as code. Then, if I'm going to be using the same material again and again, I save the file there for future use. Later, having made any changes I want in that editor, I simply copy and paste into the product descriptions. Any such editor provides a much more congenial editing environment than the one in Zen Cart. And you can easily find one that is free or low-priced, if you don't have one already.
