WordPress 2.6.3 bugs

I grabbed the code to try to change the wallpaper.  No big deal right?  Wrong!  The code did not work.

This is the code I tried to copy and paste from the SEO bugs and fixes page.

/* removed background color. Replaced with background picture */
body {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, Sans-serif;
font-size: 10pt;
/*    background-color: skyblue; */
background-image:
url(‘images/test.jpg’);
background-repeat:
no-repeat;
background-attachment:
fixed;
}

This is the resulting code on the style.css page that I pasted to.

/* removed background color. Replaced with background picture */
body {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, Sans-serif;
font-size: 10pt;
/*    background-color: skyblue; */
background-image:
url(tmimages/test.jpgtm);
background-repeat:
no-repeat;
background-attachment:
fixed;
}

Somehow the ticks got replaced with tm.  Unfortunately, I was not able to figure this out until after I opened the style.css page using the notepad with my webhost.  I opened the style.css in WordPress and notepad on my desktop to see that it was correct, but when I opened it with the notepad with my webhost, it showed up wrong.  This is one serious bug that would have been a huge problem if I was not able to view it using a third party.

Therefore, do not cut and paste the code.  Type it in by hand.  If you do, you may find out that you will have a huge headache.  That would explain why my HTML documents created in another program always look wrong on WordPress.  WordPress converts the HTML tags into words.

This may be the reason why this user posted this comment.  I did not understand before, but I do now.  I hope you guys and girls do too.
