Carrie and others--

I've discovered that things in the email message that don't show up will when I

This used to happen a lot with Grace's messages, I think. If it was smart 
quotes, and that makes sense seeing their locations,  then the validator didn't 
replace them with straight quotes but just added them. Ugh.
