Many of the content is cut and paste from Microsoft Word documents into the content management system of my site http://www.futuremovies.co.uk

When I run a validator it does not like the special characters I use but it looks fine in the browsers I have tested them on. I do not want to convert to ASCII before pasting as there is is a lot of content to update and the site is updated by non technical people.

Currently I use iso-8859-1 but since many are pasted from word should I use windows-1252 (thats what Word users)?

Try this:

Go to http://selida.camelon.nl/ and download Selida. Then, open up your page with Selida and run "HTML tidy."

HTML tidy will clean up your HTML for you.

Hope this helps

Oh I see how it works. So when I type in HTML into word doc as part of the article like double quotes it will actually work when put into this program and other format issues. I will ask my editors to consider it cheers.
