Ascii character issue with wordpress import

Long time listener first time poster , ive searched and read the welcome guides but i cant find a solution to my issue with ghost rendering characters in the following manners any insight would be super appreciated.

How were these posts created? Were they done using the Ghost editor, from an import, via an integration, etc.?

official ghost wpress export plugin

Does the json file you got contain these escape characters? If so, I think the easiest course of action is to find + replace the escape characters in the json file and re-import content

so i did this and it still renders them back … go figure
