I've recently added some RSS capsules to a few of my hubs.
What's with the weird characters being substituted anywhere I've used punctuation marks, such as apostrophes, long dashes, etc?
If I view the hub in Google Chrome, all these (very common) characters are replaced with an 'a' character with a '^' above it. In Firefox, each one is substituted with a very weird looking boxed character.
This looks very un-professional, and is making our hubs look really amateur. Could the staff look into this as soon as possible, please.
This happens when people write hubs in programs like Microsoft Word, which uses fancy curly quote marks and other custom punctuation characters. These are non-standard characters outside of the Word software, and the technology that generates the RSS feed cannot interpret them into recognizable characters.

I tried to place a photo capsule to the right of a text capsule.I couldn't find any instructions in the FAQ or a hub that addressed this matter. So I started clicking various up and down arrows and shift right arrows...
