    I tend to think of this as a religious war. There will always be those
    who feel English can be written perfectly well with straight ASCII, and
    others who feel it cannot be written properly without curly quotes and
    arrows and symbols and at least four types of dashes and every Latin
    letter used in a loanword or name that appears in an English sentence.
    [1] These two groups will never agree on what the "exemplar" characters
    for a given language are.
