If the user wanted to use the preferred character, U+2019, would using
the no break space (U+00A0) after it resolve the word or line break
issues? Or possibly NNBSP (U+202F)?
It's a shame if users choose suboptimal characters over preferred
characters because of what are essentially rendering/text selection
issues. IMO, it's better to use preferred characters in the long run.
(Users should file bug reports on applications which improperly medially
break strings which include U+2019.)
