Hi there

We're looking into the viability of using M?ori in our website. I realise there are some issues about character sets both in the HTML source and the MySQL database but UTF-8 should deal with most problems.

Ideally I'd like to use the "Insert Custom Character" button in the TinyMCE editor to offer vowels with macrons over them. Has anyone come up with a solution to this?

For anyone who stumbles across this question: Silverstripe themselves supplied us with a solution.
