MS smart quotes

Hello All,

I wonder if there is anything in CodeIgniter functions that replace MS smart quotes with normal quotes ??

like :

function fixMsSmartQuotes($string) {
$text = str_replace(
array("\xe2\x80\x98", "\xe2\x80\x99", "\xe2\x80\x9c", "\xe2\x80\x9d", "\xe2\x80\x93", "\xe2\x80\x94", "\xe2\x80\xa6"),
array("'", "'", '"', '"', '-', '--', '...'),
// Next, replace their Windows-1252 equivalents.
$text = str_replace(
array(chr(145), chr(146), chr(147), chr(148), chr(150), chr(151), chr(133)),
array("'", "'", '"', '"', '-', '--', '...'),
return $text;

i faced this problem when user try to copy text from word document and paste it into a textrea input and insert it into database where the text will truncated when it encounter any smart quote.
there is no sql error during the insertion.
