EditLive! provides a simple mechanism for customizing the insert symbol dialog to allow you to make it easier for your users to find the symbols they need or to add symbols that aren't provided by default. By default, EditLive! provides a pretty comprehensive set of symbols, but you can either replace those or add to them by specifying your own symbols in the configuration file.
To do this, simply edit the symbols element within the wysiwygEditor element in your configuration file. For example to have just the three symbols ©, ® and ™, the symbols element would be:
<symbols clearDialog="true"> <symbol char="©" /> <symbol char="®" /> <symbol char="™" /> </symbols>
The clearDialog="true" attribute instructs EditLive! to replace the default with the specified symbols. If clearDialog is set to false, the specified elements will be added to the dialog along with the default symbols.
Also note how the symbols were specified as XML entities, it's important to note that the configuration file is an XML file so you need to use the numeric form of the entities and not the HTML specific named entities. Alternately, if your configuration file uses UTF-8, the symbols can specified as the characters themselves without encoding them as entities.
