[resolved] My Plugin Changes Encoding. Why? (2 posts)

    Hello all,

    Would love a little help here. Simply turning on my plugin is changing the sites encoding such that a dash "-" becomes "—". This happen in both my tinyMCE editor (including both Visual and HTML views) and in the posts when seen from the site.

    However, immediately upon Deactivating my plugin, it is fixed everywhere.

    I have no idea as to why. I reside in the US and develop using standard tools such as NetBeans.

    in the Plugin Header I have
    /*
    ...
    Text Domain: my_plugin_name
    */

    In troubleshooting, I have tried commenting out all of the add_actions() and just about every section and function of the two files, and still the issue exists.

    I have no idea where to look and I know relatively little about encoding in general and I am quite new to developing plugins.

    Any help you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Trip

    UPDATE: RESOLVED

    OK, I found that it was caused by having a full HTML header with a javascript in the doc.

    I was trying to take a quick and dirty approach with the JS in that this is a simple plugin. But, I guess I'll have to move the JS to an external file.

    Thanks!!
