Unicode Character Fixup Script

This form can be used to prepare text for submission to eZine sites such as Another Realm and Strange Horizons who take submissions as plain text in email. The converter will change the double quote characters “” to the character and the single quote characters ‘’ to the character. It changes
the Ellipsis to three periods and the em-dash " to two dashes. Other Unicode characters are changed to the ? character so check when you are done for question marks that don’t make sense.

When the conversion is done any characters that were changed to ? are displayed to warn you that your text needs to be tweaked.

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
