I'm looking for a solution for SS, where any inch characters ' and double primes are replaced with proper quotes:

Wordpress has a function called texturize:

I know I could do a string replace at onbeforewrite, however I also want to effect content from TinyMCE which obviously has html quotes which I don't want to touch.

So unsure if I should do str_replace for just title, or if I should add to tiny_mce_improvements.js or if there's some profanity filter I could use globally.

Thoughts anyone?
