I was wondering how Hugo deals with quotation marks in markdown files? Is there a definitive documentation anywhere? I am specifically lookign to do the following;
- Have both ’ and " (single and double) in markdown
- Have both ’ and " (single and double) in templates
On my website, I see funny looking questionmark icons instead. As seen in the image below…
I have also tried useing " in my markup (and also in my templates)
Sorry I couldnt find any reference to how to do it.
Thank you heaps for any help
Do you have a git repo to share? This would be difficult to troubleshoot without seeing your code.
Off the top of my head I wonder if it’s related to character encoding, so you could try inserting the following into your
<head>, but I doubt this is it.
Thanks Zwbetz, no luck unfortuantely…
I checked and I already have that header…if its of any help, the theme was originally based of the hugo-doc one…
My repo is a private one, d’oh…(for no other reason than because my other software stuff is private so I stuck to bitbucket)…
Does the URL help any?
Below is the one with the funny question marks
Below is the one where I have tried using " in a template
Thanks you kindly
If it helps, the question mark you’re seeing is the Unicode Replacement Character: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Specials_(Unicode_block)#Replacement_character
While not the exact problem, it helped me fix it…I dont know why, how it happened but, my single appostraphes were all set to this char -> ’ and I didn’t notice they were not a normal appostraphe…
So a find and replace has done the trick
Thank you heaps!
