Does anyone have an idea why smart quotes do not appear when typed in Christianity.SE, but they do appear when typed in Biblical Hermeneutics (BH).SE?
For example, I am typing beginning and end smart quotes in the post creation/editing box by using Alt+0147 and Alt+0148, as follows: “ ” On the other hand, these are beginning and end dumb (straight) quotes: " "
While the smart quotes do in fact appear as smart quotes in the post creation/editing field, when I actually submit the post and view them, they appear to be dumb (straight) quotes. Yet, if I do this exact thing on BH.SE, they both appear as smart quotes here while I type in the post creation/editing box and also after I submit the post.
What could explain that?
Here is a screenshot of what I type while editing a post, versus what appears when I post:
