After much reluctance I upgraded to WP 2.2.1 that too because I though Fantastico will handle that. But after the upgrade I recently noted that in all my posts the comma, quotes and dot characters have been converted to junk characters. See http://www.indibloggies.org/mutter-with-megha-in-conversation-with-greatbong. You will see â€™ instead of apostrophe and â€¦ in place of ... and so on.
I am glad that I did not upgrade my Hindi blog or god knows what would have happened to the Unicode text. Why do I say that? Because it can clearly be seen from the Unicode comments on the mentioned post that Unicode comments were reduced to total Junk after the upgrade. Not only this, the upgrade converted all such comments/trackbacks into junk.
Guys any way out of this mess? I don't even have my Fantastico backup to revet my WP install.
