SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING A PROBLEM WITH OUR WEB SITE
We are having one very significant problem with our web site publication. Somewhere in the process of converting documents to HTML documents, or somewhere in the File Transfer Protocol action, some, not all, punctuation marks are not being recognized. The default action seems to be replacing the unrecognized symbols with diamonds that have a question mark inside the diamond. This is irritating for the most part. One action this has caused is the intentional avoidance of quotation marks in our documents being published on the web site. This avoidance of certain punctuation marks can be confusing to readers as it takes away one of the obvious markers that some material is borrowed from other sources. In the absence of quotation marks we are being particularly careful to notate when material is the intellectual property of others. Hopefully this technological problem will be resolved in 2017.
