Bizarre forum glitch!

It's probably special "fancy" apostrophes/quotes (are you on Mac/iOS and is it automatically changing apostrophes and quotes as you type? This also alledgedly happens to people copy-pasting from Word), emoji, or accented characters. The forum needs to be switched to UTF-8 mode, that will probably resolve this.
