I can really relate to this...I have 4 textarea's where this occurs
daily. The Oracle database can handle the special chars (how many
characters CAN they use for a "bullet"?), but my particular data needs to be
forwarded to some job search engines, which do not take kindly to these chars...
even if you do not use the demoroniser itself, it's got all the
transformations you should need to eradicate this big pain-in-the-ascii.
ps: anyone else out there get co-workers, friends rolling on the floor laughing by
explaining the whole "de-moron-izer" thing??
