    This is a question, but feel free to move it to suggestions if it's more appropriate there.

    I'm a typographical purist, when possible, so it's always slightly annoying to me to see text set in an attractive, proportional typeface but that uses the standard, straight "typewriter" symbols for apostrophes and quotation marks.

    "Here is a sentence with the default quotation marks."

    “Here is a sentence with typographically correct quotation marks.”

    Here's a sentence with a standard apostrophe.

    Here’s a sentence with a typographically correct apostrophe.

    Here’s a sentence...with three “dots” as an ellipsis.

    Here’s a sentence…with a true ellipsis.

    While I'm not sure it would be possible to get xenforo automatically to convert three dots to an ellipsis, would it be possible to have xenforo use the typographically correct apostrophe and quotation marks—similar to the way Microsoft Word pulls that off, automatically, as the user is typing?

    Even better if it could warn ban users for bad grammar and automatically correct there grocers apostrophe's.

    There is an “AutoCorrect” plugin for CKEditor. Perhaps something similar can be done for XF’s editor.

    That would be nice. I'm mostly using @cclaerhout the tinymce editor, but I also use redactor.
