request for msword compatiblity and formatting fixes (3 posts)

    I noticed that a lot of people do what I do when writing a post: use MS word to write, edit, proofread, paste the text onto to Note or Wordpad to remove formatting and then pasting it either into a Blog or Emai message. A formatting problem usually comes up when apostrophes, colons etc turn into symbols. This became clear when my blog was moved to a new server and over 100 of my posts has question marks floating everywhere. I still don't know what to do to fix this. Any help would be appreciated.

    But the real thing I was to propose is if WordPress can either provide an upgrade in the Writing functionality to including Spell Check at minimum...or to make this pasting of MSword files compatible with WordPress to avoid mishaps like the "question marks" thing that is just too exhaustive to fix through manual editing.

    I believe that SpelCheck will be added to WordPress in the next version:

    Have you tried using Outlook Express for writing, editing, spell checking etc... and then cutting and pasting in?
