Our functional specs are written in MS Word and we often copy error
messages from those docs and paste them in our code in IDEA. The problem
is, if the writer had smartquotes(curly quotes), which is an autoformat
"feature" of Word, in it, they get transfered to our code and some
browsers don't recognize them. They are very hard to find in code by
"eye". My question is: Is there a way make IDEA highlight them or
convert them or better yet, not allow them?
"A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy,
education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary.
Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of
punishment and hope of reward after death."
[Albert Einstein, "Religion and Science", New York Times Magazine, 9
