    It's a minor point, because technology often dictates that Navajo is written with the ascii apostrophe,

    The same could be said of the apostrophe in French : not the ASCII value (U+0027) but U+2019 is what should be used if Unicode capability is available. Reality is there are a lot of pages with U+0027 (unfortunately).

    Two examples of correctly coded pages are:

    Cheating, two subscribers to this list ;-)

    Just for fun (in Unicode but with U+0027 ‒  I searched for ba'áłchíní or dootł'ishii, etc. all using ł) (dootł'ishii) (di'nisbąąs)

    I wonder if any author uses U+2019.
