Are those actual apostrophes and not the curly special character that you might
not have a glyph installed for?
Well, that's why I posted the 'view source' window for that message. It seems to
do fine. If I don't have the glyph, do you have an idea of what I might be missing?

Or might be poorly set encoding of the given message -- it looks like TB trying
to display as ASCII something which is actually CP1251. Reporter, could you
please check in TB, that it recognizes correctly encoding of the message
Notice also that curly quotes/apostrophes are NOT part of ISO-8859-1 -- quite
often what is marked as ISO-8859-1 is actually Microsoft's CP1251, which is adds
support for couple of characters (including curly quotes, apostrophes, etc.) in
very broken manner. If it is the case, blame author of the message, not
Thunderbird which did, what it was supposed to.
If the message is not private (and it doesn't seem to be) could you please
attach it to this bug as an attachment as well, please?
You're right, the real encoding is CP1251. I guess Thunderbird isn't at fault here.
The message is already attached.
OK, then it is NOTABUG.
