Either use windows-1252 as charset and the byte 146 (0x92),
or replace 146 by &rsquo; / &#8217; / &#x2019;   Or use an
Unicode format for u+2019 (right single quotation mark).

&#x2019; doesn't work with Netscape 3.x or 4.x.
&#8217; and &rsquo; don't work with 3.0 (on my OS/2 box)
Unicode doesn't work with Netscape 2.02 (= 3.0 on my box)

Byte 0x92 and windows-1252 works with my four browsers.

You'd have the same problem with all 27 windows-1252 
characters in the range 128-159.  But don't try &#146;
it's invalid.
              Bye, Frank
