I have just upgraded to a new computer with Windows 7. Installed my CS4 Suite and am having an issue with Dreamweaver. In the past, on my XP machine with CS4, I ws always able to copy and paste from a Word 2007 doc or an Outlook e-mail, into notepad, and then copy nad paste into Deamweaver without any problems with "smrt" characters , ie, curved quotes, etc. Now, whne I do this, the characters carry through into Dreamweaver, are not encoded as apecial characters, and show up as weird symbols in my final Web page when viewed via a browser. I can go through manually in the code and replace the characters, but this is really tedious. Is there a setting or something that will eliminate this problem?
Nope. I tried changing preferences and even if you go to "Text Only" it eliminates all the formatting except for the special characters. Still get the curly quotes, etc.
