Replacing the quote character

The ascii number will depend on the font you are using.
Some fonts do not use high ascii for curly quotes, so char 210 looks like something else, especially a font like Wingdings.
Another caution when using the reserved word 'quote' in LC...
put word 2 of dataString -- will only work for straight quotes, not curly quotes.

I discovered I have the MS curly quotes. This is what works for these:
replace numToChar(210) with "#" in tList
replace numToChar(211) with "#" in tList
Thanks Mike and Jerry.
