(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves
0000553: Apostrophe in story headline
We can't print an apostrophe in the story headline. If we use ', there is " in the game. And if we use ['], there is this error message : [** Programming error: tried to print (string) on something not a string **]
The story headline is "L'épopée d'une abeille rouillée".
No tags attached.

There were actually two bugs here: first, it failed to recognise é as a letter, which ought to have made the apostrophe automatically come out right; and secondly, the explicit use of ['] failed. I've fixed both.
