Good work finding that one. Sadly it's not the answer I was hoping for :(

I suppose I could replace all the single quotes with &rsquo; but that
means the spellchecker will not work properly on those words. And I
don't know what it will do to the translations. Or I could change the
don't into a do not, but that would make the manual sound more formal.
