Help with the "find and replace" option; character problem

Postby Brian L. Chacon » Tue May 06, 2014 5:20 am

Hi,

Each time i tell Word to find .html" and replace it with EN.html" ,
i get instead this: EN.html»

The problem comes from the » at the end, which should instead be "

It's a big problem, because the text is destined for a webpage creation, and the » isn't recognised.

Thanks for your help.

Basically, it's just a matter of knowing that the plain double-quote character is ASCII 34 - which is what the ^34 represents. Using that prevents Word substituting the desired plain double-quote with anything else (e.g. smart quotes or other auto-correct options).
Thanks,
FriedL
