Hi Alan,

Furthermore, some "editors" such as MS-Word break the source, substituting
RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK (Character: ’ U+2019) for
APOSTROPHE (Character: ' U+0027)
for some insane reason cited as the preferred character to be used for apostrophe.


From the Unicode specification:

0027 ' APOSTROPHE
       = apostrophe-quote (1.0)
       = APL quote
       * neutral (vertical) glyph with mixed usage
       * 2019 is preferred for apostrophe
       * preferred characters in English for paired
         quotation marks are 2018 & 2019

So I think Word actually does the right thing (assuming you
can live with its auto-correct features in the first place)

Best wishes,
Taco
