The characters Microsoft software introduces don't play nice with
non-Microsoft software, and cause a lot of problems like this for
web-based systems. If it helps, I wrote a small function to replace the
'bad' characters with the correct ones:


It can also remove the extra meta info stuff that seems to get thrown in
when you copy large amounts of text into a rich-text editor, as this
often breaks the display of content in non-MS browsers, although that is
a little experimental at the moment, as I've not really had the time to
test it exhaustively.
