Hi: I set up BE 2.5 for my wife's blog, and she used Word to compose her first post, then copied and pasted the title and body into Windows Live Writer to publish the post. When she composed the title in Word she used "It's a wash", and Word converted
the single quote into a possessive quote.
She was able to successfully post to the blog, and the post appeared on default.aspx, but if you click on the title link the server returns a page-not-found error. Looking at the link, it appears as:
However, this link does not resolve. I found that if I do the same thing in BE.net directly (e.g. go to "/admin/Posts/Add_entry.aspx" and paste in the line "It’s a wash"), the string is accepted and saved in the dB, but the page
can't be resolved.
If I use a regular single-quote (e.g. single-tick), BE doesn't have a problem.
Is BE filtering extended characters in titles, or should it? Not sure if this is a bug or just a problem with conversion?
