It’s all about the difference between U+0027 and U+2019.
I feel lazy this morning, here is a quote from WP:
There are several types of apostrophe character in Unicode:
* ( ' ) Vertical typewriter apostrophe (Unicode name apostrophe or
apostrophe-quote), U+0027, inherited from ASCII.
* ( ’ ) Punctuation apostrophe (or right single quotation mark; single
comma quotation mark), U+2019. Serves as both an apostrophe and closing single
quotation mark. This is the preferred character to use for apostrophe
according to the Unicode standard.
