I have a site where users copy and paste content into a textbox to upload it - often they copy from a word document. The resulting content in html displays fine in IE but has the square boxes over apostrophes etc in firefox. When I add a utf-8 charset line in the display html it works fine in firefox but not in ie - does anyone know a good way of resolving this ?
