WordPress apparently goes around converting perfectly good low-bit ASCII characters like the single quote into high-bit characters like the apostrophe. This is tremendously irritating – if I wanted text littered with high-bit ASCII, I’d use Microsoft Word.

Hunting for the solution to this problem, I found The apostrophe is the modern day Shibboleth, which in turn led me to The Apostrophe Protection Society! What’s not to love?

In the meantime, if you know how to stop WordPress from adulterating my text, let me know.
