Re: Question about braille sign

If its any consolation things like this can show up in text editors peculiarly as well. I have never looked into it greatly but sometimes apparently good text on a web site can have embedded odd characters in it in a text editor like =20 at every line break or similar. It can be a real pain if everyone is not singing from the same sheet so to speak.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Question about braille sign

Guenni, this is probably an apostrophe in Unicode, likely UTF8. It is
generally considered correct coding procedure to signify the language
& character encoding of the document. Failure to do so throws errors
in all browser development tools, so the likelihood is that there's
really no way to fix it. If the author did not specify an encoding
method, then perhaps the text encoding item on the view menu can help
you fix it. But, as I said, that's normally not the case, as
specifying this is really standard coding procedure.

when I'm writing the apostrophe "'" is shown normally as a

shown as some strange sign, made of different symbols, which is a bit
annoyning. Why could that be, and is there a way to fix it?
best wishes, Guenni
