HTML Special Characters Helper v1.8

I’d like to announce the official release of the updated HTML Special Characters Helper plugin (v1.8) for WordPress.

Admin widget on the Write Post page for inserting HTML encodings of special characters into the post.

Recommended update! Highlights: added support for localization; added filter to support other post types; enqueued JS/CSS; compatibility is now WP 2.8 – 3.3+; and more.
