In doing a copy edit, I found the following things that seemed strange to me:
- The sequence (\'\'Id\'\') appeared in several places.
- A sequencd
\u201dappears in several places. (where
dis some digit.)
Could someone explain, please, what these are supposed to mean?
Further, in previewing this I find that
xxx seems not to work!!

what browser are you using?
It doesn't seem to understand utf8. Mike Linksvayer 22:03, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
Using FireFox-1.5 on Linux
It understands utf-8 just fine. eg: ® © (copyright & (R) symbols) show properly, entered as utf-8 by pasting.
OTOH, when I pasted the (TM) symbol, I got \u2122 shows up as backslash-u2122 !!
What browser are you using and how do they show up there?

Forensics nearly complete :=)
It was not the browser causing the trouble, it was the X clipboard on my Linux system. It doesn't understand utf-8 !!
I can even get a ™ by simply selecting and pasting w/ the mouse, bypassing the clipboard and the <shift-insert> key.
I plan to undo your undo and fix it up right ASAP.
OTOH, there are (∃) other problems w/ the Wiki software
You will notice that <blockquote> works fine, but ...
It seems that the software escapes out the ampersand that is required for entities to work and also escapes out q tags.

I see the (c) and (r) properly. The wiki is running MediaWiki 1.6.x, we will upgrade to 1.9.x soon and see if anything changes. Mike Linksvayer 07:01, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Shouldn't this say "example" or something? Omegatron 05:49, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
