Unicode quotes break cutting and pasting

  1. WordPress seems to be replacing ' (U+0027) with ’ (U+2019), this is fine for normal text but for source code causes problems since often it isn't evaluated propperlly. For example copying the sourcecode hilighting tags from will result in them posted as plain text rather then hilighting anything, but changing the ' to a ’ works fine.

    This probally happens with double quotes " (U+0022) with ″ (U+2032)

    Also backticks aswell, which break posting of bash shell scripts.

  2. I put mine in a text file and upload it through WordPress. Saves me headaches.
