Bon anniversaire, M. Darwin

Félicitations à Charles Darwin, qui fêterait aujourd’hui ses 200 berges, s’il était toujours en vie.

  1. Bon anniversaire indeed - I always think of Darwin alongside Marx and Freud, and it seems that Darwin's ideas have been the longest-lasting (although the current financial crisis may see a long-overdue revisit to Onkel Karl).

    For links, when you post there is a small editing tools bar above the text box and you'll see a small 'link' icon there - try that out with urls.

    With regard to diacritical characters, go the dashboard (click on the big B top left) and change the language from the drop-down list on the top right. Presumably it should work fine then. :-)

  2. Or, when composing, switch to 'edit html' mode, and add the characters in extended form:

    é is an é
    ä is an ä
    ç is a ç

  3. Doh! It replaced them...

    é
    ä
    and
    &ccedil

    is the first column. Didn't realise it worked in comments!

    Test: bold, italics

  4. I've just tried to do the accents, and the result was so disastrous I've given up! Congratulations to you too was what I meant to say. Does the first day you blog count as your blog birthday?

  5. I will be logging this conversation to come back to once I am a wee bit more proficient. I like how easy it is to share information :O)
