Quotation marks - not rendering consistently


#1

Hello all,
I have text in a paragraph that contains quotation marks. However, the quotation marks are not rendering correctly. I seem to be typing in inch marks, or the quotations are not pointed the right way...
I don't see any controls in Webflow designer for controlling it. Is it something in my keyboard?

Where did the text come from? Assuming you pasted it in, then Webflow is simply presenting the text you put in. If you use straight quotes, like "these" then the quotes should be straight. If you entered typographical quotes, like “these” then the quotes should be curly. If you want to use the typographical ones, you'll need to know how to enter that, depending on your operating system and keyboard layout. Another option is to use character entities for left double quote and right double quote, which are an ampersand immediately followed by ldquo or rdquo immediately followed by a semicolon. That's ugly but it usually works in the viewer's browser.
