I have got a 'associated'  error with the browser in Android.

 If a web page in not available it will provide an ugly error message on android
 (I get the text tomorrow) and the UI is frozen. I don't know. They could be related...

    Update: the error is because there are actually three codepoints. When I 
    decode them individually I get what came through on the list:
    226 - 8364 - 339
    Latin Small Letter A With Circumflex - Euro Sign - Latin Small Ligature Oe
    Which still isn't a curly quote.
