Dunno whether this regression is perhaps limited to MS Windows or
mail client Outlook.  I am using both.

emacs -Q
C-h i ; Choose Elisp
g font and TAB RET

Select the last paragraph about parameter `alpha' and copy it
using `M-w'.

M-x report-emacs-bug

Yank the copied text into the bug-report buffer.

Hit `C-c C-c'.  Choose to use an external mail client to
send the report.

When the mail client message window opens, select the
boiler-plate text:

*** E-Mail body has been placed on clipboard, please paste it here! ***

Paste the copied report-message text, replacing the selected
boiler-plate text.

This is what you get in the email message, to send as the
bug report:

     The =A1=AEalpha=A1=AF frame parameter can also be a cons cell =A1=AE(=
=A1=AEactive=A1=AF .
     =A1=AEinactive=A1=AF)=A1=AF, where =A1=AEactive=A1=AF is the opacity o=
f the frame when it is
     selected, and =A1=AEinactive=A1=AF is the opacity when it is not selec=

Curly quotes in the Info buffer have been replaced with
escape sequences such as =A1=AE.  This is in spite of the
fact that the mail-client window into which the text is
pasted is perfectly capable of handling Unicode chars such
as curly quotes.

(Just one more undesirable and unforeseen consequence of the
curly-quote-mania virus, I guess.  Time for yet another
hack-job workaround?)

Please give this a try. I am boldly marking the bug as fixed.

I expect our more-extensive use of curved quotes to shake out other bugs like this in Emacs, and it is a good thing to fix them.
