Subject: Definitions in WD8 that contain non-ASCII characters

I note in the following definitions that 
non-ASCII characters are used for punctuation.  I 
suggest that we change these to dumb ASCII 
punctuation characters in order to help with 
anyone wishing to process the content without 
tripping over character set and encoding problems.

Witness (at least on my screen) how the UTF-8 
encoding of the special punctuation characters 
messes up the definition when in my email message 
(if you cannot see this mess then your email 
system is interpreting the UTF-8 characters properly).

I'm not suggesting pure ASCII definitions with 
any bias to the English language, rather, it is 
for cases such as using the definitions in email 
where the email system is not UTF-8 aware, that 
problems are caused as noted below.  Only five definitions need to be changed.

I hope this helps.
