Kenneth Whistler wisely and gently corrected me:
[my errors on apostrophes snipped]
> Careful. U+2019 (not U+2018) is the preferred character for
> apostrophe (as well as the right single quotation mark).
> U+2018 is the *left* single quotation mark, which has the turned
> comma shape like U+02BB.
> The preferred shape for the Hawai'ian glottal stop is the turned
> comma, and not the apostrophe shape.
Right you are.
