Hello Werner,

In order to show special characters in AllWebMenus you should use "HTML - Formatting Mode" in menu items. (see screenshot)

You should also check this blog post to see more information.

After you have done all the appropriate changes then you need to recompile - reupload the produced files.

Let me know if you need more information.

Kind Regards,

Hello everybody!

We just released the latest version of AllWebMenus Pro, version 5.2 Build #820!

Take a look at What's New:

- Added a check for the compiled menu name so that it does not use any spaces or special characters.

- Fixed an issue where the option "hovers over another item" for sticky submenus did not work properly.

- Fixed an Opera (only) issue where the width of a subgroup was not exactly as specified by the user.

- Fixed an issue when converting old version awm files (version 3) to version 5 awm files.

- Minor GUI fixes/enhancements.

You can download the latest version of the program at

HTML can sometimes be a tricky business... and as such, not everything you see is what you (actually) get!

When adding HTML content through the relevant properties available in our applications, some special characters you add might be incorrectly translated as HTML.

This will cause the following to happen:

  • Special Characters will not be displayed properly
  • Your entire HTML content might be broken

So, what can you do about this?

To make special characters show up on your pages, simply use a special set of codes called "character entities". When you add character entities into your HTML code, your browser will display them as the corresponding symbols or characters you want.

The International Organization for Standardization has narrowed down in a list and has compiled in the ISO Latin Alphabet the most commonly used character entities which include special characters, letters with diacritical marks (accents, umlauts, etc.), and scientific and currency symbols.

The code to be used for special characters is displayed in the Name Code and Number Code columns. You can use either codes as they will render the desired results in the same way.
