I found this closed issue that seemed to address the problem I'm seeing: http://drupal.org/node/373542 Comment #11

However, when I made the relevant change by adding additional entities to my wysiwyg/editors/tinymce.inc file, the characters still did not get saved with the proper encoding:

function wysiwyg_tinymce_settings($editor, $config, $theme) {
  $settings = array(
    'button_tile_map' => TRUE, // @todo Add a setting for this.
    'document_base_url' => base_path(),
    'mode' => 'none',
    'plugins' => array(),
    'theme' => $theme,
    'width' => '100%',
    // Strict loading mode must be enabled; otherwise TinyMCE would use
    // document.write() in IE and Chrome.
    'strict_loading_mode' => TRUE,
    // TinyMCE's URL conversion magic breaks Drupal modules that use a special
    // syntax for paths. This makes 'relative_urls' obsolete.
    'convert_urls' => FALSE,
    // The default entity_encoding ('named') converts too many characters in
    // languages (like Greek). Since Drupal supports Unicode, we only convert
    // HTML control characters and invisible characters. TinyMCE always converts
    // XML default characters '&', '<', '>'.
    'entities' => '160,nbsp,161,iexcl,162,cent,163,pound,164,curren,165,yen,166,brvbar,167,sect,

  );

So, for example, I would expect that with the entities named here, someone selecting the euro character by interacting with the TinyMCE character map popup would get a Euro character placed into the wysiwyg field, but on the underlying HTML code, the character would appear as &euro; or &#8364;. The underlying HTML still just shows a euro character not encoded.

What am I missing? Why are these entities I added not being payed attention to by TinyMCE?

Much thanks!

Can you replace that long list with just a single value (for example, just the Euro sign) and test again? Make sure to flush all caches, do a hard browser refresh.

Sorry, but without further information I'm going to close this issue.
