    Kind of a cross between technical glitch and user submission support. So, apparently the system now turns smart quotes, ellipses, and other "special" characters into white question marks on black diamonds.

    Is Development fixing addressing this issue?

    And should we be fixing them (and as editors accepting submissions to fix them) in the meantime?

    We're working on getting this issue fixed, so it isn't necessary to edit them.

    Okey-doke. Just need to have an official explanation to give to people when we reject their submissions.
