Why do some quotation symbols in the text of an Instructable sometimes display as the """ HTML tag? I'm using Mac OS X and the font is Arial.

. It happens with other characters, also. Eg, "'" (apostrophe/single-quote) shows up as "'". . That is sometimes called a "cosmetic" bug - it looks ugly, but doesn't really affect the functioning of the site. Ie, probably not real high on the priority list.

That always happens; has nothing to do with OS X or the Font. Honestly, I don't know why this happens. I know there are some formatting errors when pasting from WORD, but that's not the case here.
