Indicates that non-basic characters like ampersands are converted into HTML entities

If true an ampersand '&' is exported as &.

Added the degree symbol to the characters turned into entities. Swiss, French and German quote styles are automatically detected and 'entified' without needing to resort to this setting.

Export markup elements, e.g ^value()^, check this attribute before encoding values.

English typographic quotation marks “ ” and ‘ ’ are exported as HTML entities rather than straight quotes, e.g. “ for “ left curly double quotes.

The symbol € is exported as €.

Δ is exported as Δ, δ as δ, μ as μ and ∑ as ∑.

The move to UTF-8 encoded export since version 5 has lessened the need to this setting.
