[pmwiki-users] convert characters to HTML entities when pasting from Word

When you copy and paste content from Microsoft Word into 
a wiki edit form, non-standard ascii characters such as 
curly quotes, em and en dashes, and ellipsis come across 
as themselves, rather than as the correct HTML entities. 
Has anyone created a set of ROSPatterns to turn such 
characters into their corresponding entities?

Is this the best solution?
