Yes: a means to check the actual byte code of a character! Or some  
different colour to be used for typographical quotes.

I think you mean the quotes in the geographical co-ordinates of  
places in your example. These are not meant to be curly but straight  
– because they are no quotes. ``'´´ stands for minute and ``"´´  
stands for second. And I'd also recommend some space between " and  
then the O or N and a bit less space between the number and the m of  
the depth where the organisms were found. I remember a package that  
was doing these things automatically, but I can't recall neither its  
author nor its name ...
