If you’re seeing bad glyphs for quotes, ellipses, etc., think “encoding?”
Ever since I started, I’ve been struggling with quotes; single quotes (or “inverted commas”), double quotes, and ellipses kept rendering the wrong glyphs, such as the Euro sign. I wasted a lot of time trying to tell the HTML renderers how to handle these correctly, all the while wondering why I wasn’t seeing everyone complain about it!
It’s simple; I forgot to specify the correct encoding in my templates. Argh! This has bitten me before.
Changing my template header from this…
fixed the problem.
Yes, the header needs work, but encoding issue, the bane of my existence, is solved!
