Removing special characters when copy/pasting from word
Posted by Frank Calabretta on 29 December 2012 08:29 PM

Problem:

Text such as apostrophes or quotation marks copied from word and pasted into RTE gets turned into odd symbols when page is displayed in browser.

Solution:

From your master template page,

Remove the line:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

Replace with:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

There is no guarantee that this will work because some characters in word are not supported in all browsers.

In this case, manually remove/retype the offending characters using your wysiwyg editor.

Hope this helps,

DMXReady Team.
