Maybe not.  Maybe I didn't mean to type `z's', but rather, `z's, yes, my
guess, Juanma, is that /a/ single-quoted z is rendered thusly:  `z', and
that more than one single-quoted z, `z's.  (The closing single quote looks
like it wants to indicate contraction, say, ``The single-quoted z is getting
the best of me,'' but it isn't---not with that opening single quote.)

[I see that you've closed this bug.]

Thanks for making the corrections.
