I am opening a text file using Mac's TextEdit that has é in it. é is supposed to be showing up as é instead.

Is there a way to make TextEdit read it as é?

  • Can't you just edit the file and replace the phrase with é, using copy/paste if necessary? – Tom Gewecke Jan 27 '18 at 15:53
  • If you add the .html extension to your text file, it should display as é. – Tom Gewecke Jan 27 '18 at 18:34

é is one of the HTML forms of é and when é is pasted as plain text... No, TextEdit will not convert it to é.

Either copy from a source that show it as é or use the Find and Replace... command in TextEdit to find é and replace it with é.

As a side note, é and é also represent é in HTML.
