Just a little hint for those with the same problem:

Most of the other authors on write up
their articles in Microsoft Word before bringing them to the
site (so that they can spell/grammar check in a comfortable
environment). Problem is that when it comes to copy and paste the
article to the site, Word has already put in smart quotes, apostrophes,
ellipses, etc - very problematic when they've been putting
in textile - style links into the word documents.

To get around this, I've got my own Filter (GroggyFilter), which filters
out those smart things and lets textile re-smart-ify things

The filter also lets you include attachments in a textile way
(!my_image! rather than <r:image name="my_image"/>)

(If you use it, you'll want to change it to use vanilla RedCloth instead
of GrogCloth - that's a very specific textile extension for
my site)
