Then try to tell your browser to display the pages in ISO Latin-1! It might also be possible to tell your windowing system to convert everything copied to ISO Latin-1. I've heard (or rather read) of a so-called registry…
In using UTF-8 instead of ISO Latin-1 your saved files on disk will contain the same bytes for the characters in the US-ASCII range and two bytes for the 8-bit characters, for example accented characters. The typographical quotes you copy will be encoded by three bytes each.
It's worth to upgrade to UTF-8. We're not living in some limited country but in a global village.
To most people solutions mean finding the answers. But to chemists solutions
are things that are still all mixed up.
