A month ago (back before the switch to the new server) I posted a short story entitled "Interview with the Alchemist."

Someone u2u'd me that the text is now corrupt, with question marks sprinkled throughout the file.

Can I fix this, or would I have to go in and re-post the text in an edit? I'm not sure I saved the text anywhere. . . .


Thanks.

I dont know how you can fix it, but it was caused cuz you used "quotes", and the new server doesnt like "quotes" at times. Sometimes it seems like it does, sometimes it seems like it doesnt.

I just checked my own story and it seems ok. I write it using Wordpad and C&P it once it is done. The only special characters I use are speech quotes ( " ) and descriptive quotes ( ' ) and I haven't had any problems with those.

I have to admit that I check my writing better now than before since we only have a limited time before the edit button disappears
