Support » Fixing WordPress » Apostrophes Displaying As Commas?

  • vinnienarducci


    So I’m having this weird glitch I’ve never seen before on any site…Essentially, all of the apostrophes are displaying as commas on some machines. I have a mac running lion and PC with windows 7 and each machine displays them correctly. I’ve tested several others and they are all fine, however, my supervisors Mac/Snow Leopard is doing this in both Firefox and Safari.

    I went to her house to try a few things. I tried stripping all the text css and it still did it. I also ran Firefox with no add-ons in safe mode and same problem. I thought maybe this was a rich text artifact from the e-mail content I was pasting into the site but I made a new page with straight html using just <p>apostrophe’s</p> and same problem…

    I’ve never encountered this any suggestions anyone please help? Is there an issue with utf designation? I can’t make heads or tails of it and a google search didn’t yield anything either…Here is the offending site: If you click on the …read more link at the top the first page has an apostrophe in its first sentence.

    It’s a rendering issue with the Istok Web font that affects certain browsers and operating systems, and has nothing to do with WordPress.

    See this thread for more details on the issue.

    Note the issue does not present itself on all operating systems or browsers.

    We are also using the google fonts version:

    Specifically we’ve seen it present itself in Chrome 15 on OSX 10.6, but I cannot reproduce on 10.7 in Chrome, Firefox or Opera.



    Thank you so much for yr time and response, much appreciated.



    Absolutely, good luck!
