    Are you writing in English or another charset? It looks like an encoding problem.

    Do you write the post yourself or do you copy/paste it from other source?
    And what plugins are you using?

    if ur using an automating plugin then it's more likely its the main reason.

    Definitely an encoding problem...usually it is a copy/paste of an existing post that contains either 'smart' apostrophes or quotes...save the text as UTF-8 and then repost.
