Thanks very kindly David,

Your gizmo worked on an accent grave (è) but not on the right
single quote (’). The neat thing is that your gizmo does exactly
what I used to have to do by hand (back when it worked). We would do our
writing/editing in Word then use Dreamweaver to strip out all the
Microsoft style tags and then use Homesite to convert the Microsoft
typographic elements to named elements. If there's a way to get your
script to work, it would save us a bunch of tedium.

Thanks again.

FWIW it comes with manila callbacks for newMessage and changedMessage.
