Copy and Paste from Word causes problems with curly quotes and apostrophes

Hello all,

I have a problem with copying and pasting from Microsoft Word into a manilla
site.  The curly quotes and the apostrophes get altered to a comma in the
case of the apostrophe and a strange character for the start and ending

I understand it's because the Frontier Server is a Mac and the client is a
PC.  Attempts to fix this have only changed the wrong character to another
wrong character.

If anybody has any ideas I would be most grateful, as currently every story
that gets pasted has to be read carefully to pick up the offending
