I have hust written a document on my Mac that uses curly quotes in
places. When viewed on anything but a Macintosh, I notice that they
don't appear right.  I have been unable to find anything in the ISO
ISO 8879 list.  What should I do if I want these curly quotes. Am
I supposed to use plain quotes and leave it up to the browser to do
the necessary work?

Also, is there a tag that indicates what character set is being used
in the document?

Thanks
