About an hour ago, I asked a question on rpg.stackexchange. As many times before, my question was edited by another user. I am always thankful when someone goes to the bother of cleaning up my messy questions. But I noticed one thing in particular, that always gets edited, not only in my questions, but in other questions as well.
My quotation marks and apostrophes that look like this
, get replaced with quotation marks and apostrophes that look like this
I'm not a font expert, so I don't know if one set of punctuation marks is better than the other one or if there is some other reason, why the straight quotation marks and apostrophes are preferred over the curvy ones. I usually write my questions in Microsoft Word, then copy them over here and edit them a little. English is not my native language, so I use Word to check my spelling. That seems to be the reason why my questions contain the curvy ones.
Why are curvy quotation marks and apostrophes undesired on stackexchange?
