"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.
