Re: [ruby-81] Parsing bad characters out of a user submitted chunk of text - Actually i'm pretty sure what sumit is talking about is the quotes that aren't part of the standard ascii table. These are the left and right quotes commonly seen. Standard ascii only has the double quote character to represent both left & right quot user 3. Oct 2, 2007 10:55 PM
Re: [ruby-81] Parsing bad characters out of a user submitted chunk of text - Bad quotes? Like quotes that began but didn't end? It's hard to make your script context sensitive but at the very least you could count the number of double quotes in the text and make sure that number is not odd And what is wrong wit Billy Oct 2, 2007 8:27 PM
