Hidden problems of the blogging

Hi there.



It's rather short message about a potential problem you might face as
well.



Recently, I've been told that few of my blogs are having incorrect
links to other resources. Being very careful about posting any
materials, I was quite surprised and went to
http://weblogs.java.net/blog/cos/ to check it out.



In a short time I realized that a couple of the articles were typed
using href="http://www.sun.com/software/star/staroffice/index.jsp">StarOffce's
document writer and were saved in OpenDocument Test (ODT)
format. As the result, all quotas - " - were replaced by fancy
typographical quota symbols. When they became a part of an URL they
were encoded into something like %E2%80%9C for left "
and %E2%80%9D for the right one



That is well know fact, but is a good illustration of what kind of
weird bugs you might discover sometimes during your quality cycles.



Cheers,

Cos
