Problem with Special Characters (3 posts)

    I am using the following style in my blog:

    body { background: #fff; color: #333; font: 62.5% Georgia, Times New Roman, Times, serif; }

    Now I am stuck with a special character problem. This is the content I am trying to publish:

    .. quote from Louis L'Amour--"Too often I could hear men boast of the miles .. "

    When I am previewing this post the quote between "--" and "Too" gets reversed i.e instead of an opening Quote it becomes a closing quote! So the whole line "Too often I could hear men boast of the miles .. " starts with a closing quote and ends with a closing quote which is wrong.

    Any way outs please?

    Thanks in advance!

    For the time being I have resolved the issue using ..

    “Some Text”

    and the result is .. “Some Text”

    Please read it as & # 8 2 2 0 ; Some Text & # 8 2 2 1 ;

    But I wonder is this a quick fix or a permanent solution.
