I have a problem where the string being returned by
server side : MarkingEditor.content
client side : var edcon = $find("<%= MarkingEditor.ClientID %>").get_html(true);

if the content is say
abc <font size=6>xyz</font>

server side has quotes so the returned string is   "abc <font size='6'>xyz</font>"
client side no quotes the returned string is  "abc <font size=6>xyz</font>"

When pasting from word quotes and hyphens are also different - server code : code 150, client : code 8211  (&#8211 being a hypen)

I have diabled all content filters

This is the case even thought the editors content is set from the database witht he server side values, when posting back different ?

HOW CAN I GET BOTH SIDES  TO RETURN THE SAME VALUE (which is important for reason i will not go into here)

Hi Simon,

I made a test with the provided content and I was unable to reproduce the problem. I captured a video demonstrating my test which you can see at:

As to the hyphens, please, see the following two forum posts on the subject:
Paste from Word - different behaviour in ASP.NET and SharePoint
MS Word Smart Quotes - the content filter is made for RadEditor Classic.

 You can see how to create a content filter for RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX in this live example:

and this KB article:
