I'm trying to put a story in .rtf format with straight quote marks rather than curved ones--same goes for apostrophes, etc.
I cannot, for the life of me, find a way to do this. I looked at the formatting guide that Strange Horizons put up, but I cannot figure out how to turn off "smart quotes" or whatever it is that keeps preventing me from flattening the quotes out.
I put it into plain ASCII into a .txt file and then put it back in Word and Voila...curvy quotes.
Please help a poor man get into John Scalzi's writers' workshop, please?
