Thread titles showing " instead of quotation marks

Mon Apr 01, 2019 5:18 am

Is anything being done about the years long rendering problem where thread titles shows " whenever somebody tries to use quotation marks? I always find it visually disturbing and it’s been going on for years, yet people continue to persist in using quotation marks in thread titles despite the bad rendering on the user end.

This happens on Safari on iOS 12 and it happens in Safari and Chrome and Internet Explorer on my iMac also.

Since your post got zero responses from site admins, I thought I'd give them another nudge. It's really amateurish not be be able to render quotation marks properly. User's should not have to worry about these things. There are plenty of times users will want to put something in quotes. It' not their fault the site is through-putting HTML code instead of the proper rendering in the feed crawl.
It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

Wow thanks a lot for the interest. I’m surprised it’s been going on so long, and seems like it should be a simple fix - though I know computers can be finicky.
