    Support curved quotes in doc strings · 0fd5e659
    Paul Eggert authored
    Emacs's traditional doc string style has been to quote symbols
    `like this'.  This worked well on now-obsolete terminals where
    ` and ' were symmetric quotes, but nowadays curved quotes
    ‘like this’ look better.  Support quoting the new way too.
    (Bug#20385)

    ‘like-this’ as well as `like-this'.
