Smart quotes displayed improperly
When the " symbol is pasted in from an application like Word (which
could occur when pasting in an abstract for example), the word in
quotes is displayed as
instead of "word". This does not happen when the " symbols are typed
in. This may be related to Bug 1516.

Jing fixed this bug which is similar to bug 2517. I Tested it both using the online form and Morpho, submitting data sets to Metacat. I tested pasting in MS Word smart quotes, and they display correctly now.

This bug has been fixed (base on callie's testing). Here are somethings i did:
1)Use ServletOutputSteam to replace PrintWriter to send response of read and
query actions. So Java wouldn't encode the special characters.
2)Fix a bug in normalize method in MetacatUtil class - it will encode special
3)Fix a similar bug in normalize subroute in register-dataset.cgi.
