On April 5, 2012, WordPress did some programming code change that inadvertently damaged the use of single quotation marks in blogs with Swedish as the specified language.
This is a reminder about this problem, which I reported here in mid-April and after some back-and-forth got word from a WordPress staff member who acknowledged it as a program bug which was going to be corrected. Now, after more than two months, all your Swedish bloggers are still getting their single quotations improperly marked.
This is how the bug manifests itself: WordPress erroneously changes all single quotation marks around a word or words to double quotation marks. And even worse than that: when a non-space character immediately follows the closing quotation mark, the opening quotation mark appears as a double and the closing quotation mark appears as a single.
Both the infrequent usage of single quotation marks and the low fraction of your bloggers who are writing i Swedish will probably give correction of this bug a low priority. True, but let me remind you that bad punctuation often is a hallmark of sloppy writing and also that, in addition to insignificant little me, you are also hosting Swedish bloggers like Carl Bildt, the Swedish Foreign Secretary, who writes a daily blog about his adventures in world foreign politics. If he should attempt to use an expression within single quotation marks, then he would also wind up with faulty punctuation.
The blog I need help with is gymbrat.wordpress.com.
