Text errors on webpage after pasting to HTML editor and posting.

Quick question to anyone who might encounter this issue before.

After pasting text from a document to HTML Editor and saving it. The text display just fine in the detail screen, but when looking at the actual webpage symbols like '"- the all come out looking like triangles, ? marks etc...

Any ideas why? everything else in the text is fine, just those symbol. I usually have to go back and update and retype those symbols for them to show up right.

What is the charset that you have on this page and what does the original text look like? Also, on the page that does the insert or the update do you have any formatting applied to the editor area?

If you can post back with the insert or update page it we can check to see if there is any extra formatting being applied that might cause this. With the original text I can do some testing to see the result that I get.

On your page look for the following line:
$CKEditor_config["entities"] = false;

and change it to:
$CKEditor_config["entities"] = true;
