quotation marks and umlauts converting (3 posts)

    i realized that when i enter quotation marks and apostrophs wordpress is converting them into wrong ones.
    wordpress seems to use " instead of (in my case) „ in front and “ after the word/sentence and ´ instead of '
    i'd like to know how to change that to the quotation marks and apostrophs i need and add a request to include a solution for that into the next release ;)
    additionally i'd like to request another thing: when using an umlaut in a title (with according permalinks activated) the umlaut will be transformed into a single letter (ä becomes a) whereas it would be better to convert it into the two-letter version of an umlaut (ä would become ae)

    Try a search for curly quotes - some of the topics will have solutions for quotes.

    actually it's not about curly quotes, it's about proper quotes ;)
    i just don't get it, why do i have to take a plugin that (might) output proper quotes - and does a lot more that i actually don't need - when wordpress itself should do that already. i mean it has valid css and xhtml output, why not valid typography. i hope you know where i'm getting at =)
