Generating HTML should not create tokens if it is not necessary

Description

With CKEditor 3.4...

Suppose you edit a page with fullPage=true containing a meta in the head having charset=utf-8.

Then if the body contains foreign characters (in my case German umlauts), they are changed into the corresponding tokens. For example "a umlaut" is changed to "ampersand a uml semicolon".

This is not necessary, as these characters can be used in UTF-8 directly.

It would be better if the umlauts survived an editing process with CKEditor, as the HTML source is harder to read afterwards.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

This is happening because http://docs.cksource.com/ckeditor_api/symbols/CKEDITOR.config.html#.entities is set to true by default.

Entity uml is also present in this set thus character gets changed.
