I suspect that these are ISO-8859 characters; however, nothing in the
HTML header indicates the character set.  The characters have hex codes
0x92 (apostrophe), 0x93 (left quote), 0x94 (right quote), and 0x97
They are not, they are peculiar to Windows. The standard contains no
graphics in the range 0x80 to 0x9F, which is the range for C1 controls.
Nonetheless, Lynx, as far as I know, translates these if requested,
belonging to the sets windows-1252 (above 0x9F 8859-1) or windows-1250
(above 0x9f 8859-2) among others.

By the way, in this set 0x92 is right single-quote, not apostrophe, with
0x91 for left single-quote.
