(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves
0001056: Source apostrophe heuristic is not Unicode-aware
In string literals, the compiler attempts to distinguish apostrophes ("Steve's room") from quotes ("Steve says 'hi'.") The algorithm gets confused by accented letters, which apparently do not register as letters.

The Kitchen is a room. "Moira's room is to the east, and Moiré's room is to the west."

! Output text:
! Moira's room is to the east, and Moiré"s room is to the west.
! Note that the second apostrophe has been wrongly converted to a double quote.
No tags attached.
