Lately, I’ve noticed an inordinate amount of weird symbols showing up in my blog posts, almost always in the block quotes. Apparently, a lot more bloggers and news sites are composing their entries in word processing programs and then posting them. For whatever reason, whether it’s a function of Movable Type or the Verdana font I use, a lot of these don’t translate properly when I cut and paste them into my editor and publish them to OTB. I usually catch these quickly, but not always.
