That shouldn't happen with the quote characters we're talking about,
at least, it shouldn't happen on properly-configured platforms that
are commonly used today.

‘foo’ -- directed single quotation marks (U+2018, U+2019)
“foo” -- directed double quotation marks (U+201C, U+201D)

If you're running a GNU/Linux distribution that works like Ubuntu,
and you're on the Linux console, the following shell commands
are meeded to configure the system properly for these characters.

  export LC_ALL=en_US.utf8
