    "Universally" supported? - by the time your message reached me in the
    two instances of the ’ had turned into the glyph for the Replacement
    Character U+FFFD � (white question mark in black diamond).

    In both Andreas Prilop’s message and Jeroen Ruigrok van der Werven's
    reply "Then they should have used U+2019 (’) instead of U+0027 (')"
    displays fine on my system. It is only in your own message that the
    U+2019 (’) has become mangled.
