[1.2.2] Double Spaces being turned into capital a, circumflex accent (7 posts)

    I've imported news articles from a program named CuteNews. The import went well with one hickup. Any articles that had double spaces, WordPress outputs the double space as &#194. If I run textile1, the problem is fixed but I'd like to stop running textile1. My GUESS is that WordPress is somehow confusing an en space (&#8194) for the capital a.

    Any ideas?

    (version 1.2.2)

    Do you have Textile or Markdown plugins active?

    When textile1 is active, it fixes the problem. But I'd like to do away with running textile1. Also, fancy quotes are messed up without textile1 running, but look correct when it is running.

    Has anyone figured this problem out? I am getting the A circumflex very frequently and it always appears to be when there are two spaces in a row. What is worse is that WordPress is creating extra spaces automatically all the time so it's making it next to impossible to eliminate them... help?!? :)

    Ok... I figured out how to solve this problem... I installed the Mudbomb plugin that takes over for the terrible TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor and now I am not getting this annoying character encoding problems.

    If anyone else is having this problem try it out for yourself: mudbomb.com

    Cheers.
