I found Insert Special, is that what you mean by Insert Glyph? It 
works, but is kind of clumsy. For one thing, the window opens too 
small and doesn't remember the size you dragged it out to.

Is there a way to do it by Search and Replace? I can't figure out 
how to get 201c, etc. into the Replace box.

As for 1.3, I have 1.21 which was listed in Synaptic on my Ubuntu-
64 machine. Is there a Debian package somewhere with the latest 
beta of 1.3?
