Entering Spanish Text - Coldfusion - Advanced Techniques

We are creating a Spanish version of our site, and we would like to use "í" for accented characters. Does anyone know of a good tool or method to do this? We have a person that will translate pages into Spanish, but when it comes time to save this as text/html, there will be mass replacements to make, so I'm loking for good tools or advice. I know there are resource bundles, but unfortunately we are not taking that approach. Thanks in advance for any help!...

    why not just use the real chars instead of the html entity?

    and of course why not use rb, that's the "standard" way of handling i18n text?

    Well, as I said we're not taking the resource bundles approach. It's not my
    decision.

    As for chars vs entities, isn't there an issue with cross platforms displaying
    these characters correctly if entities aren't used?

    not using rb is pretty non-standard so i guess you already know you're in for a
    rough ride.

    no, html entities haven't really been necessary since we wore animal skins,
    lived in caves and men got dates by bopping poor women on the head with clubs.
    as long as your encoding is synched up end-to-end and your users have
    reasonably modern browsers, etc. you shouldn't have problems using the "real"
    chars. moreover since you're not using CJK, etc. that might cause encoding
    issues (since there are so many of them), realistically your chances of
    encoding issues are pretty small.
