I guess that's what I meant, smart quotes. Also, elipses "..." came that way, but only when copy/pasted from MS Word. If I type them, they're fine.
What do you mean by "changing your $charset configuration to utf-8 (as well as the
encoding of your form page"? Where do I make those changes?
Thanks for your reply.

I'm not sure what you mean. Double quotes like '"' will be fine and they
will be left as is, but I would guess that you are talking about the MS
'Smart Quotes', and yes these will be escaped as they are not valid
characters in the character set you are using. You may get some extra
mileage by changing your $charset configuration to utf-8 (as well as the
encoding of your form page.)
The real problem of course is people using 'Smart Quotes' in a single
byte character set - see
