In that long run, I have more news for you: there are languages which
have a letter that looks almost, but not exactly, like the apostrophe
punctuation mark, but is encoded differently. (E.g. Ukrainian, U+02BC
Modifier Letter Apostrophe, as opposed to U+2019 Right Single
Quotation Mark).

Good luck substituting the correct character in each case given only '
U+0027 Apostrophe.
