Topic: smart quotes
I just started a forum using punBB. Although I have registered here some time ago, this is my first real project using punBB.
Question: is there a way for PunBB to recognise smart quotes copied and pasted by other programs (ie word, pages, whatever). Our new forum seems to be attracting a lot of copy/pasters and as they do that smart quotes are inserted in the posts rendering the post non valid xhtml strict.
I realise that forums cannot be so 'strict' in xhtml validation but the problem with smart quotes is nevertheless there as they are not visible by some browsers (replaced by questionmarks in ie mac... ok dead but still kicking for some users).
For the sake of this post here are some smart quotes: ? and here is the validation page
