Description: Form variables encoding problem

Sorry but everything gets screwed because of the mixture of html entities and real 
chars. The char that gives problems is '', the corresponding html entitie is 
’, the html entitie provided by FrontPage is ’. Looking directly at 
the html code make it easier to understand what's going on.

When I enter some special chars in a textual form field (either 'INPUT TYPE="text"' or 
'TEXTAREA') they get encoded like an html entitie. For example this '' gets encoded 
as '’' in the variable of the form handling script (I hope this won't trigger 
the bug, the first char is like a '`' but "reversed", almost like a superscript small 
'/'). No coding happens for a plain typed '’', so there's no way to distinguish 
between the two cases in the form handling script and so there's no way to safely 
reverse the encoding. Browser is IE 5.5 on Windows 98.

This may happen for example doing cut & paste from WordPad, Word or existing web 
pages. I tried the same thing pasting into FrontPage Express. It encodes it as 
'’' instead of '’', may be it's just the encoding that's wrong.

P.S. Sorry for my poor English
