Your single quotes aren't converting well for me either. They all look
like question marks. Wonder if that's a font conversion issue or a 
character set issue.

I had this irritating problem converting between mac and pc platforms
where all my bullets would switch to yen symbols.

I personally find it more annoying when people have 30 or 40 character
wide delimiters.
