Hi,

Quoting lintian [1], the Debian package linter:

This manual page uses the ' groff sequence. Usually, the intent to generate an apostrophe, but that sequence actually renders as an acute accent.

For an apostrophe or a single closing quote, use plain '. For single opening quote, i.e. a straight downward line ' like the one used in shell commands, use '(aq'.

Best regards,

Thomas
