What does `This' actually look like to you? Please post a screenshot.
Or don't, because I can guess; I'm just emphasizing the importance of
considering that these characters don't look the same to everyone. 

And most users, today, use fonts in which `This' does _not_ look fine,
and 'This' looks much better.  The closest I've ever seen were PC
console fonts, which still had ` placed higher vertically, even though
they otherwise looked like paired quotes.
