    Aren't you lead stray by the poor renderings usually given to U+0027?
    As it is semantically an apostrophe, it should be used when an
    apostrophe is called for; not U+2019, as it should be used in
    quotations. But U+0027 should be given, better, apostrophe looking
    renderings. If this task, getting better fonts, seems hopeless,
    perhaps a new apostrophe character should be added.
