in thread Strange letters ...

I doubt this is what people are doing, but I achieved the above by manually changing the page's encoding (view -> encoding -> utf-8) and then submitting my node. Maybe some people's browsers are set to auto-detect encoding and are fouling up their submissions without them even knowing it?

    I doubt, because it's a very temporary phenomenon. This extra "" disappears perfectly after revisiting the node and may reappear later! But the change you made is permanently stored in the database!

    But I'm not sure if it's not just a Firefox thing, would be nice to know if it's observable with any other browser.

    My standard encoding is set to ISO 8859-1...

    Cheers Rolf
