MHonArc::CharEnt provides the main character conversion routine used by MHonArc for converting non-ASCII encoded message header data and text/plain character data into HTML. This module was initially written to just support 8-bit only charsets. However, it has been extended to support multibyte charsets.

All characters are mapped to HTML 4.0 character entity references (e.g. &lt; &gt;) or to Unicode numeric character entity references (e.g. &#x203E;). Most modern browsers will support the Unicode references directly.
