I have a book that uses apostrophes instead of quotes. (I think it's a British 
thing.). Anyway, I personally hate them.

My personal feelings aside, is there another good reason to change them? If so, 
how do I do it without destroying contractions like couldn't, shouldn't and 
wouldn't (kind of the opposite of coulda choulda woulda, (never mind)). 

Anyway, any ideas appreciated.
