ACT 2006 - symbol usage in templates

We email and mail merge our templates using ACT templates. We have no problem with the Registered Trademark Symbol ®; but for some reason the Trademark Symbol ™ always shows up as a capital T when emailed. Any solution?

 

Thanks

Off the cuff I'd guess that you're sending the emails as ASCII text. The extended ASCII character set does have a Registered Trademark symbol (&#174Smiley Wink , but does not have a TM symbol, so it's probably just picking up the T part somehow.

 

A workaround you might use is to send emails via html, and have a script that replaces the unicode? character with the html symbol. Otherwise if it's really not that important you might just use a capital TM.

We are using HTML to do the emails. I have tried using ™ for the trademark but it is not working.

Have a try of either of these (without the space before the semi colon)

&#x2122 ;

&#153 ;

 

Or even this:

<sup>TM</sup>

 

Also, check the word processor and email client to see if they might be using different char sets
