I notice wordpress changes both single and double quotations to html entities like
’. On my page, when viewing with (default) Unicode encoding, these characters look as if they’re written in a different font. If I switch to view in Western European (Windows) encoding they are okay, although the double quotes always appear as opening quotes regardless of their position around a phrase.
Without changing the default Unicode encoding, how can I make quotation marks appear correctly? Can I change how WordPress encodes them, or which entities it encodes them to?
The mismatched font problem occurs only in Internet Explorer for me, while the opening double quotation mark problem occurs in both IE and FireFox. Here is an example page, with both double and single quotes: http://www.booberfish.com/blog/2006/08/i-can-see-you/
