My blog is http://sbjh.wordpress.com/ and I use the Coraline theme. I use the text editor because I’m visually impaired. I’m tired of having to type ampersand hash 39 semi-colon for the apostrophe and ampersand hash 34 semi-colon for straight double quotes. Is there a better way? Please enlighten me with your wisdom. – SB The blog I need help with is sbjh.wordpress.com.

Using the HTML entity code, as you’ve done in your example, is the best way to work around this. Please let me know if I can be of any further help. Best, P.
