Quotation mark

Hello, I have an epub where no typographical quotation marks are in (Inch ").
If I want to change it, he also changes the XML Attribute e.g.
<link rel="stylesheet" href="../Styles/main.css" type="text/css"/> with.

How can I change the quotation marks to » and « or typographic correct “…”

Sorry for my bad english.

There are a few different ways to do this each with their own drawbacks:

1) You could remove the <link> by selecting all your html files in the book view, right click and select link stylesheets, then clear the checkboxes. Then run your search/replace, Then re-link the stylesheets. Unfortunately most headers include " in other locations like the doctype.

2) Run the search and replace in 2 passes. The first pass to replace the ", the second pass to replace the corrupted headers with a good one. Highlight the entire corrupted header, Push the Find&Replace button to copy the bad header, then type or paste a good header into the replace field. You may have to select the "DotAll" option.

3) Perform the Search/Replace on each individual html sheet (select "Current File") and deselect "Wrap". When you place your cursor just below the header it will replace all " until the bottom of the file. This will replace any " you have in class names though, so you would have to do a second search to replace those with the ".

4) Do a first pass to change the good " to something that is not used anywhere else in the book like:
search: "
replace: zzzxxxccc

Than do your normal search(es) to fix the ".

Then search and replace to put the original " back:
search: zzzxxxccc
replace: "

5) I'm sure some of the regex guru's have a method to ignore what's inside of the <> tag symbols, but I'm not smart enough to do that - maybe they can chime in with something.


I'd recommend #4 as being the least complicated, but choose whichever method you prefer.

Cheers,

The easiest way might be to install the "Smarten Punctuation Plugin" which you can download from our forum

It will ignore all attributes and any quotes within tags.

From the screen you have given us, select the files you want to smarten--Chap1 through Chap8, then press "Process." After a moment you will be told "8 files processed," click okay. Now you can do your search and replace on the new “smart quotes”, both the opening and the closing ones.

This thread is a bit older, but anyway, here's what I do in these cases:
Search for
(>[^<]*)old
and replace it with
\1new
"old" may include ", but anything (including ") within html tags will not be touched.
