I experience the same problem on occasions. I use KNode and I often quote
snippets from articles that are properly viewable in the Web browser. The
'fancy' quotes appear fine (ones where the right-hand and left-hand
quotation marks are distinguishable) until posted and then viewed.

Whether only KNode is unable to render/interpret these, I do not know for
sure, but I suspect not. I suppose that the best thing to do is to remember
to manually change these quotes before posting. These are fine for HTML
encodings and I agree that KNode should not render things in the 'compose'
window if these would not be gracefully accepted by the news servers. It is
somewhat misleading as WYSINWYG.
