I am currently trying to get the following symbols in <a href> links and they are appearing as small sqaure boxes instead - they appear fine in normal text:

and

Is there something i need to do with a &code or something instead?

Thanks

for the first you need to use: &Ouml;

and for the second you need to use: &Uuml;

hope this helps

The Umlauts are case sensitive by the way. So &Ouml; will generate a capital ֔ while &ouml; will generate a small . same goes for all the others. And in case you need it: = &auml; :D

However, I seem to recall that the UTF 8 character set includes those letters already so you might wanna check the character set in the meta section of your document:


<meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8; />
