    Default Copy/Paste gibberish

    Can this problem be fixed? When doing a copy from a webpage then pasted into a TBN post, some special characters are converted into gibberish.

    Here are some examples:

    Original - Jim Martin, "Congress must take bi-partisan action
    Pasted - Jim Martin, **蟋穎gress must take bi-partisan

    Original - Jim Martin, "As predicted
    Pasted - Jim Martin, 鬩?s predicted

    Original - "When a government program
    Pasted - 陞サ**en a government program

    Original - that it's already
    Pasted - that it騾橸スエ already

    I have been wondering why some posts look like that. Certainly know nothing about it.

    X2. I thought this was done intentionally by the poster. I will watch this thread closely.

    You are copying and pasting enriched text.

    There may be an easier way to get rid of the problem, but one way is to copy the text to Notepad or similar editor. Save the text and then copy and paste to TBN.

    Does Jim Martin speak with a strange accent?

    Specifically, TBN doesn't handle angled single/double quotes and those all must be replaced with straight single or double quotes.

    Yup, Steve got it right. It's because you are copying embedded HTML into the text editor box and that freaks out the wysiwyg editor. Copy and paste it into notepad (or if you are on a Mac, use textedit) and than copy it out and then into TBN, and it will work fine (notepad will strip the HTML out of it).

    My bad -- I thought I remembered that working. However, you can copy to Notebook, manually clean up the gibberish, and then copy and paste to TBN.
