Why? this' becomes this ’

' = a single quote character [and publishes OK}

’ = also a single quote character [publishes as a small box character]

IMO a bug

Try adding this to your <head> section

<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

That's the setting on this page and it shows up correctly

Mine is set to

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />

And that works too.

Lou Franco :re directive UTF

Lou Thank you. Apparently "someone" changed the UTF directive in some of my headers which caused the problem I was experiencing.

Not a bug for FC to worry about .. and I apologize for suggesting a bug here ... however now I have to find out who got into my system :(
