While we're at it.
Can someone offer a better choice than #x2018 and #x2019 ?
These two chars look much too much alike (at least with the font size
I use for the `default' face).
In olden times, things looked like:

          X                          X
           X                        X
            X                      X
             X                    X

Nice, symmetric and very legible.
with #x2018 and #x2019 it looks like:

          X                        XX
         X                         XXX
         XXX                         X
          XX                        X

Which I find very hard to distinguish.
In case the olden-times-look doesn't exist in current unicode fonts,
I'd like at least something symmetric like:

          XX                       XX
         XXX                       XXX
         X                           X
          X                         X

Any hint ?
