homeomorphisms of compact sets and the hausdorff distance

Hi everyone...

If given a compact subset A of a metric space (X,d), it is true
that given e > 0 there exists a compact subset B_e of X such that H(A,B_e) <
e (where H is the hausdorff distance).

It is true that for e > 0 sufficiently small, B_e will be homeomorphic to A
?? Does this question has a positive answer at least in the case X=euclidean
space ?? Are there some references with respect to this question ?

thanks in advance...

Best regards...
