WEIRD PUNCTUATION ERRORS?!

I just noticed that one my quizzes (about flightless birds) has made it onto the Top25 board, and out of curiosity I went to look at it - and all the punctuation has been changed to question marks!

A single quote in 'Don't', double quotes around "fly like a bird" and, in the description, a hyphen have all been changed! I can't check the questions, of course, but could somebody please straighten this out?!

If someone can tell me how it happened I'd be very interested to know, too!

As soon as I posted the above it occurred to me I might be able to correct it myself, and I can, so I did, but I'd still love to know what happened, please?!

Phew! I just spent the last ten minutes going through all the questions with a fine toothcomb, replacing all the quotes, hyphens and other bits of punctuation, which had, of course, been replaced with question marks!

PLEASE someone tell me what happened?!!

It seems to have occurred at the same time the EA icons showed up on our profiles.

Justin seems to be in the midst of lots of upgrades and there always seem to be a glitch or two that needs to be ironed out after launching something new!

I would like to recommend patience! Since these questionmarks showed up everywhere they should get fixed soon.
