    Great tips! Alas, (and ironically considering the nature of this piece) the curly quotes turned into gibberish characters in the email version of this article.
    That’s a glitch that has bit me more than once… now I try and remember to always use straight quotes only – they’re uglier but bulletproof.

    Whoops, some of the dashes went wonky too, not just the quote marks…
