Board bug?

Reply #1
Its because you are using the ‘ quote that Word produces, not the '.  If you are using Word, you can
Change curly quotes to straight quotes and vice versa

Word automatically changes straight quotation marks ( ' or " ) to curly (smart) quotes (    or    ) as you type. You may not want curly quotes in some cases ¾ for example, if you're using quotation marks to designate feet and inches. To turn this feature on or off:

1   On the Tools menu, click AutoCorrect, and then click the AutoFormat As You Type tab.

Show me

2   Under Replace as you type, select or clear the Straight quotes with smart quotes check box.

Note   You can find and replace all instances of single or double curly quotes with straight quotes in your document. To do this, clear the Straight quotes with smart quotes check box on the AutoFormat As You Type tab. On the Edit menu, click Replace. In both the Find what and Replace with boxes, type ' or ", and then click Find Next or Replace All.

To replace all straight quotes with curly quotes, select the Straight quotes with smart quotes check box, and repeat the find and replace procedure.

This is probably the same thing mentioned here:

... and in another thread on this board somewhere.

In short, it's a bug in iPB 1.1.1 which they (annoyingly and surprisingly) haven't released a fix for.  The bug has at least been fixed in iPB 1.2 for which a public version should be released sometime around this weekend.
