Your paper on apostrophe etc.

Contrary to your doubts on p. 2, TeX typists throughout the world always
have used, and continue to use, GRAVE ACCENT doubled to indicate
an opening double quotation mark, and APOSTROPHE doubled to
indicate a closing double quotation mark. ("Opening" and "closing"
here refer to Anglo-American practice.)

TeX is not WYSIWYG, of course.

	John Cowan
Schlingt dreifach einen Kreis um dies! / Schliesst euer Aug vor heiliger Schau,
Denn er genoss vom Honig-Tau / Und trank die Milch vom Paradies.
