[PP] Unix: smart quotes drawn way too far above the line
If you view something with smart quotes in it under linux, the quotes themselves are drawn about one line too high on the screen. The URL above contains a simple text case that shows it very well.
Given it's a Linux only problem, I can't diagnose it
We aren't rendering \u2019 properly...its a unicode font issue...
I know what the problem is, but we won't be able to fix this soon. Target M5.

I need to fix a couple of crashers for M5. This bug is not as important as the crashers... Marking M6.

Resolution: --- → FIXED
Fixed by disabling the smart quotes in large Asian fonts. The smart quotes and other CP1252 characters will be dealt with in bug 454. Currently, those chars don't display at all.
