Editorial Glitch

Post by peachvampiress » Sat Sep 02, 2006 9:41 pm

I don't know if it's my computer or something, but I was just reading the two editorials on the ADV boxsets and all the ' have been replaced with question marks (ex. it?s, they?re). Any idea why that's happeneing?

Probably because when Dan wrote them, he did them in MS Word, and upon copying over into the HTML it will turn into that.

(And no, it's not just you)

The easy way I fix that problem is just copying anything I write in MSWord into Notepad before I post it and using the Replace feature with ' or ... , sometimes the "..."s come out weird too.

So if you care to find me, look to the western sky
As someone told me lately, everyone deserves the chance to fly
And if Im flying solo, at least Im flying free
To those whod ground me
Take a message back from me
Tell them how I am defying gravity

Yeah but it wasn't always like that. I remember they were normal when he first wrote them.

I see the problem in IE and Firefox. My best theory is that it happened when we changed servers, since they appear in the database as "?"s as well. I changed over one and it was fixed. So now I have to go through everything in the whole site and make sure all the symbols are right. -_-;;;
