That might just be some "smart quoting" on the part of your MUA.
Here's what I get.
$ cat ding.tr
$ groff ding.tr | sed 1,/%%EndPageSetup/d
/F0 10/address@hidden SF(,)72 12 Q/F1 10/ZapfDingbats SF(%)A F0(,)A 0 Cg
That shows PostScript's Times-Roman being used for the commas as F0, and
ZapfDingbats for the `%', ASCII 37, as F1. Breaking it down more,
/F0 10 /address@hidden SF
(,) 72 12 Q
/F1 10 /ZapfDingbats SF
Redirecting the output to a file, and viewing it with `gs ding.ps' shows
