We seem to have drifted from the original topic of discussion, but I 
second the recommendation of Urquhart's article. I mentioned it when the 
topic came up on the Philosophy StackExchange some years ago.

Urquhart also briefly commented on the topic here on FOM, back in 2010.

I believe that this is an artifact of some of the old software used the by 
server. The surest solution is to make sure you only use plain ASCII text, 
so no diacritics, "smart quotes" or "smart apostrophes", en dashes or em 
dashes, etc. Typing only a single space (instead of two spaces) after a 
period may also help.
