Hi and thanks for reporting this. This does not seem to happen with current code, I do seem to get “ and ” in the output html.

Please test again with either the Mercurial code or 0.21.7

If the problem still occurs, please provide a sample rtf file.

When converting to HTML any left double quotes (") are being converted to double backticks or grave accents(``)<br><br>

The RTF characters that are causing this seems to be:<br>


The method I am using to convert is:<br>

<code>unrtf <i>rtfFile</i>.rtf > <i>htmlFile</i>.html</code><br>

The RTF files have been created in abiword if that makes a difference.
