    Hello, I use Verdana font for my website and I noticed when I submit a post or page or even a comment it replaces my quotation marks and apostrophes with different ones. The new ones tend to be curved and run into my text. Any ideas?

    Another, fancier option is to use a plugin to control text formatting:
