There’s such a Mac-friendly group here, I thought I might get some
guidance. I’m happily developing everything on my PowerBook, and loving
it. Yeah, TextMate is way cool. But all my clients keep sending me copy
in Microsoft Word format and the curly quotes, ellipses, dashes, etc.
turn into question marks.
This might be overreaching, but is there some way to open the Word doc,
Cmd+A/Cmd+C, then pop into TextMate and Cmd+V getting the entities
(curlies, etc.) straightened out or converted to HTML entities?
Is anyone else experiencing this as a problem? It’s hair-pulling crazy
but (um) it doesn’t happen on my Windows box.
