I have a strange problem with the latest version of Wordpress: Some writers, when they write a story, you see the quote character ', replaced with /, something that does not happen to me. Is there any special settings in the CMS that could cause this annoying problem?

If you write a double quote ( \" ) , have you the same problem? – MikeD Dec 27 '12 at 14:05
Disable all plugins and switch to TwentyEleven. Does it still happen? – toscho Dec 27 '12 at 17:21

Maybe this are regional settings involved here. I don't think that issue is showing somewhere else. Maybe they are copying their text from somewhere else.
