If you have a whole slab of text with legacy quotes, you can convert them using the form below.
If you have a modern browser (you know what I mean), you can also type text in and have the quotes corrected automatically (use ctrl to keep a straight quote).

The JavaScript to do this is available from the source of this page. It will be included in the Resources section.

Paste your text below:


"This is a 'test'", he "said" but it's "quoted".;'This is a "test"', he 'said' but it's 'quoted'.
