Upload shows strange symbols or characters?
Say, the " mark morphs into the Euro symbol.
I suspect this is because the chapter was saved as an MS Word doc file that uses characters like the "š
" in fašade,
as well as using "smart quote marks" aka "curly quote marks" instead of straight " " characters.
--- Open your Word file.
-- Find and replace words like "fašade
" with "facade
" (with the plain c).
-- Switch off "smart quotes".
in MS Word 2003, go to Tools > Auto Correct > Auto Format as you Type
> look in Replace as you Type
-> uncheck "Straight quotes" with "smart quotes"
-- If you've already saved the chapter before using smart quotes, search in Word help for "replace quotes" or "replace quote marks". There are instructions there on how to replace smart quotes with straight ones for a previously saved (encoded) Word file. Basically, disable auto-replacement with smart quotes then use Find and Replace of all " or ' marks in your document.
-- Save the file, then re-upload.
-- You could notify your readers of the corrected upload by editing your story summary to say "Chapter x re-posted." Go to your Author Options menu > Story Edit / Upload > Edit Properties
> edit the summary.
