just define a separate face for that
Something like the attached patch, say. Alan, does it work for you?
This patch calls the new face "approximate-glyph" as there are similar
problems with characters other than quotes and we may want to fix them
at some point. For example, currently if I read the Emacs manual by
using M-x info on an ASCII-only terminal, the first screen contains the
off-putting text "Copyright \u00A9 1985\u20131987, 1993\u20132016". If
someone ever gets around to changing this to display (say) "Copyright
(C) 1985-1987, 1993-2016" they can use the approximate-glyph face to
display the ASCII approximations.
