    Apostrophe conversion (2000)

    Hi there,

    Don't know if this should be here or in another forum, so here goes.

    Someone in our club writes a program article in Word for what's happening at the next meeting. He mails this to our editor who copies this into Page Maker for our newsletter. No problem.

    The author also sends the same email with the same Word document to our web master for posting. Our web master converts this to html. When viewed with IE, the apostrophe character comes out ok; with Netscape, we see "?x2019" (without the quotes). Our web master checked the html file in Front Page and actually saw "&#x2019" (w/o the quotes).

    Any clues? Any possible relationship of 2019 in unicode (Klaus - where are you?)?

    Thanks.

    Fred

    Could be the "Smart quotes" that are being used.

    Dave,

    I'll take your comment to mean curly apostrophe's since that's my problem. Good thought. Next question is whether there's any relation between a curly apostrophe and the ?x2019 we're seeing.
