User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:15.0) Gecko/20120909 Firefox/15.0.1 SeaMonkey/2.12.1
Build ID: 20120909051100

Steps to reproduce:

Launch SeaMonkey Composer, then in either the "Normal" or "Preview" editing interfaces, type a quote character.  (ASCII decimal value 34 / hex value 0x22).  Then go into the "Source" editing interface, and behold the sacrilege!


Actual results:

There's a hideous single unencoded ASCII quote character in the HTML!


Expected results:

This character code should appear in the HTML source:  "

Set importance as "major", because the only workaround is to drop into the HTML source editing interface, or use the "Insert HTML..." menu item, to key in the " sequence every time you want to type a quote character.  Most people will not remember to do this for every quote instance, and so the resulting HTML document will be broken.
