Smart quotes will be displayed as <91> and <92> in vi. A number of other special characters will also be displayed in similar fashion <96>, etc. . . .
To replaced them use do the following:
- Type:? ‘:’ 1,%s/
- Then, since it is a special character, you can’t simply type ‘<91>’ or that string will not be matched, so:
- Press: CTRL and V
- Then type: [space] x [space] 91
