User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:13.0) Gecko/20120419 Firefox/13.0a2
Build ID: 20120419042011

Steps to reproduce:

Noticed while making bug 747333 that spelling corrections return an ASCII apostrophe ‐ even if my spelling mistake contains a U+2019 apostrophe.

Would be somehow learn / give a setting for this, if it cannot be default for everyone.
Hunspell when set to UTF-8 and en-gb does this already, for all I can see.
