Is there a hack or a trick that I can use to ensure that the correct quotes and apostrophes show up on the public side of my blog? For example, using some code in the edit box?
When I edit a page, either in Visual or in Text mode, the quotes and apostrophes show up as straight double-quotes and straight single-quotes, but when the page is published, the double-quotes are changed to curly quotes, and the apostrophes are changed to curly single-quotes. What's worse, WordPress gets it wrong sometimes, i.e. two 6-shaped double-quotes instead of a 6-shaped one followed by a 9-shaped one, or using a 6-shaped single-quote in the place of an apostrophe, which should normally be 9-shaped.
My blog is for translators and editors, and I look like an IDIOT who can't write properly. Also, I receive content from guests who use their own quoting style and I want to be able to put their content on my blog without having such changes made to their writing. These people all use whatever quotes they use... for a *reason*.
So, how can I publish content while making sure that the intended quote or apostrophe appears on the site?
Please don't tell me that the only way to do it would be to take a screenshot of the content in MS Word and post it as an image...
The blog I need help with is mekaarnasieners.wordpress.com.
