[sword-devel] Grave accents

The layout of some European PC keyboards combined with problematic keyboard
driver semantics causes many users to use a grave accent or an acute accent
instead of an apostrophe when typing in English (e.g. typing John`s or
John´s instead of John's)

That's a quotation from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grave_accent

This user problem often comes up in module source texts. Not just in places
like the above examples.

In collaborative projects where the module maker is in direct contact with
the copyright owners and/or the translators, this is something we could keep
a watch for, and provide suitable feedback.

Using a suitable software tool to generate a character frequency count is
useful to analyze for such occurrences.

BabelPad - a free Unicode text editor for Windows - has such a feature in
its Tools menu.
