Ok, I have some feeds (rss/atom) that are getting
syndicated on other sites, and the problem is that
quotes " ' are getting changed to “ ’, which is never
parsed correctly. Most will translate them to question
marks, so a title such as:

Someone said: “quote me,” and I did

turns into:

Someone said: ?quote me,? and I did

Which looks really bad.

Is there a way to fix this so that feeds no longer get
the quote formatting?
