A Poem

Oh, dearest fandom,
I'd just like to say
Please turn off your Smart Quotes
And I will go "yay!"

Smart Quotes?

And *waves* HI!

Smart quotes are quotation marks that Microsoft Word likes to use; apparently Word thinks they are better than straight quotes because smart quotes are diagonal and stand out more, while in my opinion they are just annoying. They can be turned on and off in the AutoCorrect Options. Also, they are not always compatible with certain environments on the Internet.

“smart quotes” / "straight quotes"

*waves* HI! :D

Oooooooh. Got it. Yeah, those annoy me too, because I have to go into all my fics and change all of them so my fics don't look retarded on LJ. *kicks SmartQuotes* Gits.

I think I need to go turn that crap off. *nods*

Smart Quotes? *confusion* But well done with your peotry. :)

Heehee. Thanks!

Ah.

Those.

*tries to tiptoe away, hiding her fics which are always written with smart quotes, although Word changes them to straight quotes when I save them to HTML.

Although my smart quotes don't look like yours. And smart quotes aren't compatible when people send comments via E-mail because I get gibberish. *sigh*
