typo3 :: RTE :: dontUndoHSC_db and dontHSC_rte and still conversed special chars saved to DB?

This is an easy one:

you probably use the extension “tinyrte” and have your standard Page TS settings overridden by:

RTE.default >
RTE.classes >
RTE.classesAnchor >

That over overrides basically the config in /var/www/vidaverde/typo3conf/ext/tinyrte/ext_localconf.php:

RTE.default.proc.preserveTables=1
RTE.default.addParams {
remove_script_host=false
relative_urls=false
theme_advanced_toolbar_location="top"
theme_advanced_toolbar_align="left"
theme_advanced_statusbar_location="bottom"
extended_valid_elements="a[t3page|href|target|onClick|t3url|t3target],form[method|action],input[type|name],select[name],option[value|selected],hr[class|width|size|noshade],help;"
entity_encoding="raw"
}

Solution:

just add entity_encoding="raw" to your page TS config (inside RTE.default.addParams) and you are set to go.
