  We are not allowed to change from print, annoying as it is.  

  Sorry I cannot give you a happy answer.  Grin.

    I have a book that uses apostrophes instead of quotes. (I think it's a

    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.
