Quote:
assuming the quotes and apostrophes are all proper "curly quotes" to begin with
But Mike says that he often gets manuscripts in which all the quoted matter is enclosed by pairs of ", and all apostrophes are indicated by '. He has the task of replacing the pairs of " by single quotation marks (thus: ‘—’) and seeing that the apostrophes are the right way round (thus: ’— and —‘—). If he's doing work on copy finished in USA, he'll have a simpler task (but not much simpler).
