Question

What does Word do to speech marks that upsets LJ? Whenever I cut and paste from Word 2000 – some formatting option upsets LJ and I end up with a bad username tag. All I do to rectify this is remove the speech marks Word puts in and put them in again in the LJ editing screen. They do look different… but I haven’t a clue as to why…

You can turn Smart Quotes off - go into "Format" - "Autocorrect..." - "Autoformat As You Type" - and then un-tick "Replace Straight Quotes With Smart Quotes".

I've been in this one before :-)

Thanks guys – it has been driving me to distraction. I seem incapable of posting these days without cocking up something I need little help from Microsoft. Being at work it is easier to prepare a post over a while as a doc in the background and only nip on briefly to LJ to upload it. I have rendered the autocorrect tool incapable of supplying me with Smart Quotes. I hope it hurt.
