“ and Internet Explorer (6)

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
People insist on examples, so here is my page:

A colleague in China is viewing the page using IE6 any my “
characters are coming out as pair of Chinese glyphs, and taking the
following plain ASCII character with them. The rest of the page is
rendered more or less correctly.

I'd always assumed that things like “ would render correctly under
all circumstances, unless the client didn't have the right font to
display them.

Is this more likely a font issue on the target system or an IE6 problem?

We are obliged to stay on IE6 as some of our corporate applications fail
under IE7.

There still may be plenty of guessing: the W3C specifications don't
define everything and some things they leave explicitly undefined.
Sometimes they even say the browser is free to make a guess.

But yes, getting rid of all the errors certainly helps a lot and is the
first thing to do.
