  • Problem With Apostrophes

    I'm sorry for the issues with the posts where apostrophes and commas are materializing in strange ways.

    1. May I suggest.....after making your post....and if the weird symbols appear....retype it and see if that helps.

    2. I will try to correct the problem this weekend so no one has to refer to the previous suggestion.

        For example:

        I just posted a link to an East London Advertiser article. In the title, I had posted this :

        Ragged Museum at Mile End is put on ?heritage at risk? register in danger of being lost

        The ? marks were originally quotation marks ......

        I went back and simply changed the title to :

        Ragged Museum at Mile End is put on 'heritage at risk' register in danger of being lost


        Takes a couple extra seconds to do it....but until I get the thing sorted out, that's how I'll approach this latest aggravation.

            Debs:

            I know it's a pain in the ass and I'm sorry that it's like this.

              My computer skills are so rudimentary that I always hunt and peck for solutions. I'd never know if anything was wrong. (Looks like I don't have a problem with apostrophes. I live in a no service [cell phone] hole on the river if that helps.)

                My apostrophes have all come out right first time, so I presume the difference is in the device used?

                However, as I tend to check how my posts appear as a matter of course, I would have seen if an apostrophe had turned into a question mark, or anything else, and would have tried to edit the post accordingly. That might have solved my problem, but not Howie's.

                Love,

                  I'm having trouble with letters with diacritical marks. Test:

                  ? a-acute
                  ? a-grave
                  ? e-acute
                  ? e-grave
                  ? c-cedilla
                  ? a-circumflex
                  ? o-circumflex
                  ? u-circumflex
                  ? a-umlaut
                  ? i-umlaut/diaresis
                  ? o-umlaut
                  ? u-umlaut
                  ? a-tilde
                  ? n-tilde
