Aubrey - thanks for the research. I'm adding some sentences now with apostrophes to see if it's fixed as I've disabled the "Smart (dumb) Quotes" in System Preferences.

Let's see if it's fixed on my end.

Fred, KI7BCL

> FYI--I've seen similar problems when people use Word to compose their emails and then copy-and-paste the text to the email client.  Word also uses smart quotes (which means it's using the 'e2 80 99' code point instead of the old-fashioned regular apostrophe (code point 27)).
> 
> Although it seems to me that perhaps if smart quotes are becoming more common, that perhaps Hotmail should start supporting them correctly.  As I mentioned in a previous email, my Android email client (GMail app) had no issues with Fred's original email.  And now that I'm on my PC (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with Thunderbird), his email reads just fine (I.e. no extraneous question marks).  However, if I look very closely, I can see that the apostrophes in his first sentence are visually distinct from the apostrophe in his second sentence.  The difference being that the ones in the first sentence are smart quotes and the second sentence has the old standard apostrophe.  The same is true of the apostrophe in his sign-off '73's'.  The apostrophe is actually the "RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK' again, which is visually distinct.

You specifically stated a version of High Seria which makes me think you are actually asking about MacOS, especially since Chirp doesn?t run on iOS. Both FTDI and clone cables are supported on MacOS as well as it?s predecessor Mac OS X.
