this problems exists as well in the native NS (Aqua) variant of GNU Emacs 24.0.50. You can check with C-u C-x =, with the text cursor on that character, which font is used to display that character. The quotes are taken from Apple Symbols. M-x describe-fontset RET reports similarly. I've tried to cure the problem with a statement like:

    (set-fontset-font (frame-parameter nil 'font) '(#x2018 . #x201E)
		      "FreeMono" nil 'prepend)

("Monospace" might also be useful), but it does not work. M-x describe-fontset RET does report the change, but it's not expressed on screen. What does work is using FreeMono as font. This overrides the use of Apple Symbols.



It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it.
