A user creates a post with the following url:
However, my text editor converts it to this automatically (I'm using the url somewhere else in a cut and paste):
And this url fails. It's because of the different apostrophe in
I think the first one is from MS Word (maybe?) and that is what the user is working from when entering text.
My question is, should there be a way to automatically convert such entities so they are not potentially misinterpreted? Or should I just tell my text editor to not convert stuff? It seems like relying on the specific entity that that apostrophe is for a working URL is just asking for trouble at some point. Is this not UTF-8? Ugh... always getting confused about entities.
